The one-story brick house in the Ville neighborhood that was the home of Chuck Berry and his wife in the 1950s has been added to the National Register of Historic Places. The nomination was prepared by the Landmarks Association of St. Louis and recommended for approval by the City’s Preservation Board.

Chuck Berry, of course, is still very much alive and performing — making the historic designation even more of an honor. Joe Edwards told the Associated Press that Mr. Berry is "the greatest ambassador for St. Louis worldwide as far as how he’s affected popular culture and the influence he’s had on people like the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Bruce Springsteen."

I agree.
