Just 23 miles north of Milwaukee, Paramount Plaza, with its distinctive Walk of Fame sidewalk resembling a piano keyboard, recognizes the important role the Paramount Records recording studio and record pressing plant played in blues music history, and the achievements of the mostly African-American musicians who recorded for the label. Close enough to the blues scene in Chicago, Paramount Records was the perfect place for the artists to come and launch their careers. You’ll find tributes to legendary blues artists like Ma Rainey, Louis Armstrong, Blind Lemon Jefferson, and Charley Patton, who is often recognized as “the father of the Delta Blues.” Please pick up a self guided Paramount Walking Tour booklet at the Grafton Library or Chamber of Commerce. The walking tour is about 1/2 mile long and describes the area during the Paramount era.
