Mississippi Blues Trail

at Gateway to the Blues Visitors Center

Some roads take you places. Others pass through history. The Mississippi Blues Trail does both, taking blues lovers to places where history was made.  

The Mississippi Blues Trail is our state’s tribute to a truly American music genre. The trail consists of 120 historical markers throughout Mississippi, and each marker tells a story about a person, place or event essential to the creation of the Blues. Start your Tunica Blues experience at the Gateway to the Blues Visitors Center, home to the Mississippi Blues Trail U.S. Highway 61 marker, and then make your way to the following landmarks: 

  • Abbay & Leatherman Plantation
  • Eddie James “Son” House
  • Harold “Hardface” Clanton
  • James Cotton

The Mississippi Blues Trail winds throughout the state, passing through legendary towns where blues music was born. Before you hit the road, stop by the Gateway to the Blues Visitors Center for directions and tips on how to navigate the trail.
