Save Muddy Water's South Side Chicago Home

71 Signatures Goal: 10,000

Muddy Water's South Side Chicago home is in danger of being demolished. The house, that was once the hub of Chicago blues, was deemed by the City of Chicago as "dangerous", with windows, porch, doors, and stairway in need of proper maintenance. A letter, dated January 11th, is the first step in the court order that would allow the demolition of the home.

The South Side home is not just a house; it is an American music LANDMARK. If the walls could talk they could tell stories about legendary jams featuring Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Chuck Berry, Otis Spann, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, James Cotton, and countless others.

It should be noted that the property is currently owned by descendent of Muddy Waters. This petition was not started by the owners. We wish to see the property operated as a 501(c)(3) museum and educational facility. 

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND HELP SAVE MUDDY WATER'S HOME!
