lovely visit and the docent was very knowledgeable and thorough. Louis Armstrong had a neighborhood existence which I am sure many are not aware of. He loved Corona and was lovely to his neighbors.

A tour of a preserved house of the Great ”Satchmo”. The house was small but the information given was huge. You can even find out how he got his nickname. The decor of the house really brought back some memories of that time period.

Besides a step back a few decades, a visit to the preserved home of Louis and Lucille Armstrong provides a connection to one of America’s greatest cultural figures and the domestic influence of his life partner. 45-minute tours start on the hour.
