Janis Joplin’s old apartment was a turn of the century 4-level Queen Anne Victorian, located in Golden Gate Park’s Panhandle. The apartment is located in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, and is four blocks away from the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets.
Janis lived in many places in San Francisco, but this is the only one that ever appeared in official documentation, in the form of her driver’s license which you can see above.
Joplin lived in this house from June of 1967 through April 1968 and shared the apartment with her friend Linda Gravenites, who has said that they loved the apartment, but eventually moved as it was only a one bedroom.
