Stephen Foster, songwriter of several traditional American songs such as "Oh! Susanna," "Camptown Races," "My Old Kentucky Home," and "Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair," died at the North American Hotel on January 13, 1864 after a fever caused him to fall on a washbasin and shatter it with his head.

Foster is buried at the Allegheny Cemetery. He was 37 years old when he died.
