About ClevelandThis Mississippi Delta cotton farming community has grown up into a town with a renewed tourism economy, fueled in part by the just-opened GRAMMY® Museum Mississippi and a thriving dining, shopping, cultural and music scene. You can't really separate the cotton that was produced at Dockery Farms from the music that was created there; in fact, some say, it was the birthplace of the blues, where musician Charley Patton created the Delta blues. You'll find one of many Mississippi Blues Trail Markers across the state there.
While you're in town, be sure to check out the impressive collection of railroad memorabilia and O-Gauge model train set at the Martin & Sue King Railroad Heritage Museum at 115 S. Bayou Ave.; phone (662) 843-3377.
South Court Street comes alive in April for the Crosstie Arts & Jazz Festival , with a juried fine arts show, live entertainment, great food and road races.
