Saranac Lake, New York: Robert Louis Stevenson Memorial Cottage
One that qualifies, though, is the Robert Louis Stevenson Memorial Cottage. You've probably read some of his work - "Kidnapped" and "Treasure Island" qualify.
He spent the winter of 1887-88 in Saranac Lake at this cottage. Stevenson must have made an impression. They kept his place as is as a tourist attraction, and named the street after him.
Imagine what would have been done if he stayed a while longer!
