Hopson Plantation

The Hopson Plantation just outside Clarksdale, Mississippi was the first plantation to completely mechanize cotton production. Once the home of delta blues legend Joe “Pinetop” Perkins, today it sits in a state of arrested decay. Music can still be found in the commissary on certain nights, and the rooms are up for rent. Definitely a cool stop along the Blues Trail.

    1. Sounds great and I wish I could, but I only get down there when work sends me. Twice more this year though, so I have that to look forward to. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
