Jim Morrison went to live with his paternal grandparents in 1961-62, when he attended classes at St. Petersburg College (then a junior college).

The home was demolished on Aug. 15, 2005. The developers (prominent Scientologist realtors in the area) auctioned the doors (get it?) on eBay to raise money for a charity. A series of condo towers were created on the property, and the developers have stated they would place a memorial plaque in the south tower where Jim Morrison would have lived.

The name The Doors comes from a William Blake quote: "“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite.”
