The latest information from Missouri State Parks on COVID-19 can be found here.

An authentic player piano fills the air with Scott Joplin melodies as you walk through the historically appropriate modest flat on Delmar Boulevard where Joplin rented a room in 1902. Scott Joplin House State Historic Site, which stands as a testimony to his talent and hard work, also includes museum exhibits that interpret Joplin’s life.
