Bobby Mackey's History
Country music legend Bobby Mackey first laid his eyes on the crusty abandoned building that is now the Music World and instantly fell in love with it. When he came across the building, he was not thinking about purchasing a property or owning a night club. However, according to reports voices were speaking to him and telling him to purchase the building and so he did.
From 1850 to the later part of the century, the building served as a slaughterhouse. The sealed well in the basement, which is now known as Hell’s Gate, was used to wash away animal remains. It later became a casino and a refuge for mob members who took over the place from Buck Brady, the previous owner.
Buck Brady was distraught after the casino was taken from him so he shot himself. There have been reports of multiple murders but it has not been clearly established as to how many people died at the hands of mob members.
From the 1930s to 1970s the building hosted an array of nightclubs. Eventually, the building was used by Satan worshippers who is said to get strength from the building’s evil history. There were reports of sacrifices but eventually, a new life was given to the building when Bobby Mackey purchased it.
