This is it -- the place where the blues really got their start. Dockery's is a restored plantation that hosted some of the earliest and best blues musicians who set the stage for the one of most significant movements in modern music. The plaques scattered throughout the buildings tell the full story, but you will need to stop, sit and imagine yourself on a lazy night with a group of neighbors listening to songs that explore the depth of the human experience. The spring of 2014 will mark the opening of a new blues museum right down the road toward Cleveland. Don't miss this landmark, which is beginning to draw visitors from all over the world. After a stroll through the plantation, head into Cleveland for lunch or dinner and enjoy a true delta town.
