Stovall Farms Home of Muddy Waters - Pretty Interesting

This cabin is one of several still standing on the property of the Stovall Irrigation Company, formerly Stovall's Plantation, outside of Clarksdale, Mississippi. McKinley Morganfield (aka Muddy Waters) lived here as a child. It was a former slave cabin. From this humble beginning, Muddy went on to "invent electricity," meaning that he brought the electric guitar to the fore in the blues, and laid down the basic format for what was to become the Rock and Roll combo; drummer, lead, bass and rhythm guitars.
