Miles Davis’ childhood home will be a museum and educational center

If you know jazz history, there is no conversation about the genre that doesn’t include the late great composer and trumpeter Miles Davis. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to see artifacts from where he grew up and other pieces of his journey in one place?

One organization is in the process of making this happen. A nonprofit agency called HOME (House of Miles East St. Louis) started a project to restore Davis’ childhood home at 1701 Kansas Ave. in East St. Louis, Illinois.
