Baptist Town Greenwood, Mississippi

Robert Johnson had a rented room in the Baptist Town section of Greenwood and, after allegedly being poisoned by a juke joint owner, Johnson was carried to a little house in this neighborhood where he lingered for a few days. The revered actor (and blues fan) Morgan Freeman – founder and co-owner of Ground Zero blues club in Clarksdale – was born in Baptist Town in 1937. Robert Johnson died there in 1938.
