One of the most influential jazz musicians in history, Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong moved to Chicago from New Orleans in 1925. He lived at 421 E. 44th St, and the original building still stands today. While he and his wife only stayed in the city for a few years, some of Armstrong’s most influential years came in Chicago. The home is currently a private residence commemorated with a small memorial in front of the building. It is conveniently located near Nat King Cole’s former residence as well as the site of the historic Sunset Cafe. Louis Armstrong’s Home is a piece of Chicago history and one of the most memorable landmarks in Bronzeville.
