The home of Aunt Olivia Lewis

3837 South 4th Avenue

Where Prince found a home on the Old Southside and drove his aunt to distraction

Prince lived intermittently with his Aunt Olivia in this home while attending school at Bryant Junior High School and Central High School. In the mid-1970s, Prince called this corner of the Old Southside home. But the two clashed over Prince’s late-night comings-and-goings and constant guitar playing. By the time he was 16, Prince had left this address to move in with his best friend, André Cymone.

If you are standing in front of this home, turn around and look at the Masonic Temple across the street.
