Janis Joplin's House (Former)

This was the home of legendary rock singer Janis Joplin.

She bought the house towards the end of the 1960s and lived here until her death in 1970.

Former neighbours of the star have talked about cars from large parties that Janis threw lining the roads and Janis driving her Porsche, painted in a psychedelic design, up and down West Baltimore Avenue.

Nearly 40 years later, there are still remnants of Janis' short stay in the house, including a small bar made from redwood burl and wall paneling made by the carpenter who did much of the striking artistic woodwork that was featured in the interior of The Trident restaurant, a popular Sausalito watering hole during the 1970s. There's also a 4-foot-high dog door next to the front door that Joplin had installed for her St. Bernard. A bathroom includes a tiled sunken bath and shower below a skylight that looks out into the towering redwoods. Janis' pool table still stands in the family room.

She died at age 27 from a drug overdose in a Los Angeles hotel room, and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995.
