Bach memorial in Eisenach

Bach house

On the assumption that this was the birthplace of J.S. Bach, this Eisenach house was acquired by the New Bach Society in 1906/07 and furnished as a museum.

The house where he was born was very close by at Lutherstrasse 35 (formerly Fleischgasse), but the original is no longer preserved.
