Stein, born in what was then Allegheny, Pennsylvania, on February 3, 1874, is recognized as one of the leading modernist writers of the early 20th century. Her family lived at 850 Beech Avenue and owned a store on Wood Street in downtown Pittsburgh. In addition to becoming known for her own writings, Stein hosted a legendary salon in the years she lived in Paris, from 1903 to her death in 1946.
