There is a house on Crescent Drive that was home for more than 30 years to one of the most beloved and talented show business icons who died Monday at the age of 97. The name of this original “girl next door” was Doris Day.

Born in Cincinnati on April 3, 1922, Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff began her career as a big band singer in 1939, with her first hit recording being Sentimental Journey in 1945 with Les Brown & His Band of Renown. She later embarked on a solo career, recording more than 650 songs during the next two decades.
