On December 8, 1943, James Douglas "Jim" Morrison was born at Brevard Hospital at this location.

Since then, the building has changed ownership many times, but has kept its general construction, most notably the curved-linear facade.

The son of a future Navy rear admiral (George Stephen Morrison), the Morrisons moved a great deal while Jim was growing up. The elder Morrison was unsupportive of Jim's musical ambitions, and by the time Jim Morrison had graduated from UCLA he had cut ties with his family.

When a neighbor brought over The Doors debut album to George Morrison, he wrote Jim a letter asking him, "to give up any idea of singing or any connection with a music group because of what I consider to be a complete lack of talent in this direction.'

The relationship was nonexistent after that point.
