10 N. Fourth St., is a historic home, once the home of J.W. “Blind” Boone, a blind, black pianist who against all odds was a nationally known musician. He lived from 1864-1927. His home is slated to become a museum.
According a notice on the blog of University Avenue Bed & Breakfast at 1315 University Avenue, a Blind Boone Holiday Concert will be held at 6 p.m. Dec. 4, 2011 in the Second Baptist Church in Columbia.
