The remains of the cabin from Stovall Farms where Muddy
Waters lived during his days as a sharecropper and tractor
driver are displayed in the gallery. Musicologist Alan
Lomax recorded Muddy on the front porch of this shack
for the Library of Congress in 1941. Best known for electrifying
the blues in Chicago, Muddy is represented by posters,
photographs, and a life-size wax statue, displayed along
with one of his electric guitars and ZZ Top’s "Muddywood"
guitar, crafted from one of the cabin’s timbers.
