On November 23, 1936, in Room 414, a talent scout arranged a session with Brunswick Records who set up a temporary studio in the hotel where Robert Johnson recorded a number of songs including the blues classics “Cross Road Blues” and “Sweet Home Chicago” among others.

In 2009, John Mellencamp came here to record an album in the same room where Johnson had recorded his classics.
