This property has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior.
Designed by Anker Sveere Graven and Arthur Guy Mayger in 1928, it was the tallest building in Illinois outside of Chicago. In addition to being a first-class hotel, it became an important entertainment center. In the 1930's it was the recording studio for some of the most influential Blues musicians in the Golden Age of Blues Recording. This plaque honors this historic building, and these artists.
