5. Webster Hall Was Plagued By 4 Different Fires
In the years 1911, 1930, 1938, and 1949, Webster Hall was damaged by fires. The one in 1938 was so bad it killed two people. Though most of the hall is still original, it did lose its original mansard roof to the fire in 1949. That particular fire was caused by a lit cigarette and burned for two days straight. After the last fire, the purpose of Webster Hall needed to be reassessed. And so, it became RCA Records Studio.
