Literary Landmarks Register

Home of Dashiell Hammett and Sam Spade

Dashiell Hammett (1894-1961) lived in this building from 1926 until 1929, when he wrote his first three novels: Red Harvest (1929), The Dain Curse (1929), and The Maltese Falcon (1930).

Sam Spade's apartment in The Maltese Falcon is modeled on Hammett's, which was on the northwest corner of the fourth floor.

This site is dedicated a Literary Landmark by Friends of Libraries U.S.A.
