Art Tatum Boyhood Home, 1123 City Park Avenue.

Art Tatum Boyhood Home, 1123 City Park Avenue along the Dorr Street Corridor in the Junction Neighborhood. Built in 1905. In 2021 grant money will be used to “start revitalizing the home into the Art Tatum Zone, a museum for children and families that will provide a multi-sensory learning experience about the musician and the neighborhood.”

“Born in Toledo in 1920, Art Tatum was, and is, the giant of jazz piano. Count Basie called him the eighth wonder of the world. Charlie Parker once said, “I wish I could play like Tatum’s right hand!” Dave Brubeck once said, “I don’t think there’s any more chance of another Tatum turning up than another Mozart.”
