The late-1800s Starr Piano Company not only made and sold pianos and phonographs but also housed Gennett Records, which recorded jazz, blues and country artists including Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton and Hoagy Carmichael. The complex was partly demolished in the 1970s and the shell still stands. The area is said to be haunted; witnesses have heard footsteps, voices and a phantom truck at the loading dock. Cold spots have been reported as well.
