Neal & Carolyn Cassady moved into this house in 1949. Jack Kerouac stayed with them in the upstairs attic several times.
During his stay from December 1951 to April 1952, he was working on the experimental book "Visions Of Neal",
parts of which were inserted into his later best seller "On The Road". As "Visions Of Cody" the work was finally
fully published in 1972, 3 years after his premature death.
