  • The best-known of numerous sites claiming to be the Devil's Crossroads where Robert Johnson sold his soul to the Devil for guitar prowess. Today, the site is a busy intersection of two busy roads in Clarksdale. The monument is unremarkable.
  • Did not see the Devil..But hey! Maybe that's a good thing

  • Very Nice road us 61👍😉
  • Really? THIS is the place? Not at all what I imagined, given that it's in the Delta. Disappointing doesn't even begin to cover it.
