The Jimi Hendrix House (Red House)
For a few years in the 1960s, Hendrix lived in the home at 1524 Haight Street, which is only a few doors down from the famous intersection that gave the neighborhood its name. Though the details of Hendrix's time in the apartment are sparse, it is believed that he lived there for a time with his girlfriend.
Nowadays, the apartment is still a private residence and is located above a tobacco shop. The building is painted red, in honor of Hendrix.
