John Coltrane's Home In Desperate Need of Mold Remediation

The Long Island home where John Coltrane penned his iconic “A Love Supreme” is one of America’s most endangered historic sites, according to the annual list released by the National Trust for Historic Preservation Wednesday.

Jazz great Coltrane purchased the modest 1950s Dix Hills ranch home in 1964 and lived there until he died in 1967. He transformed the basement into a recording and rehearsal studio and converted a guest room into a composition space. His wife Alice Coltrane lived in the home until 1973.

Though the space is more artistically than architecturally significant, a local organization that owns the vacant home aims to restore it as an education center. However, the home has fallen into disrepair and it needs mold remediation, repairs and conservation.

For 24 years, the National Trust, a non-profit organization that advocates for preservation of historic sites, has selected one-of-a-kind landmarks that it feels are worth saving. Of the 233 sites selected, only a handful have been lost, officials say.
