Muddy Waters Mojo Museum
Muddy Waters aka McKinley Morganfield is widely recognized as the father of the Chicago Blues and one of the major influential figures in the birth of Rock and Roll. Modern music today would be much different if it not for the music of Muddy Waters. For many years the first Chicago home of Muddy Waters, located at 4339 S. Lake Park Ave. in the North Kenwood neighborhood of the city, was in danger of being demolished. Now there are plans headed by Muddy Waters Great Granddaugher Chandra Cooper to create the Muddy Waters Mojo Museum!
