Alannah, originally from the east coast, recently traveled to Port Arthur to visit Janis Joplin’s hometown and childhood home. Alannah moved to San Francisco when she was 25 and rented the apartment at 122 Lyon St. that Joplin lived in when she first moved to San Francisco in 1967. The Museum of the Gulf Coast gift shop sells a lot of Joplin merchandise, including bricks from her childhood home. Click here to browse.
