House of blues to become museum?

Published: Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

CHICAGO – The house that once belonged to legendary blues musician Muddy Waters is one step closer to becoming the tribute fans have long envisioned.

A prospective owner who hopes to turn the home into a museum is expected to close on the property today, said Chicago attorney Erik Miles, who represents the owner, Chandra Cooper. Miles declined to disclose the buyer’s identity.

Only a year ago, many feared the house might be torn down, after building inspectors found “dangerous” conditions.
