Abstract: The Stax Museum of American Soul Music was established in the early 1960s. It is located at 926 E McLemore Avenue in the Downtown area of Memphis. The theater they converted it from was already built at the time Stax moved in, but the conversion was done by Jim Stewart and Estelle Axton. The building is made of brick and is Eclectic in architectural style. There is a blind window and a strip window. There is a fa�ade that extends past the rest of the building. There is a large radio tower with the Stax logo on it. To learn more see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stax_Records or http://staxmuseum.com/.
