Robert Johnson MuseumAs I said on this article, so many people rave about Robert Johnson, and rightly so. When I arrived at Crystal Springs MS to visit the museum, it was closed because of lack of demand. The Mayor made a phone call for me and next minute Robert Johnson’s granddaughter is opening up the museum for me and we get to spend time with her at first hand.

There are wonderful legacies of people and stories that exist, but people don’t know how to access them. While Gracelands and Tupelo has lines of Elvis fans every day, there are also loads of fans of people like Robert Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt and others who would flock to their hometowns, given the right marketing and opportunity.

Who was famous from your town, where their legacy could be celebrated and their descendants can help share their stories?
