Sinclair Lewis Boyhood Home

The Sinclair Lewis Boyhood Home, located at 812 Sinclair Lewis Avenue, formerly South 3rd Street, Sauk Centre, Minnesota in the United States, was the childhood home of Nobel prize-winning author Sinclair Lewis, who was born February 7, 1885, in a house directly across the street. His most famous book, Main Street was inspired by his home town of Sauk Centre as he perceived it from this home, a simple 8-room frame structure. His father, Edwin J. Lewis, was a physician and conducted his medical practice out of this house, as was common in that time.
