  • Even if you do not care for the Blues this is worth a stop. Seeing how the cotton industry was decades ago (most of the buildings are still there) gives an insight into Delta culture.  more »
  • It's a quick stop. Push the button and hear the music. It's a cool experience to stand in among the abandoned buildings and hear the original blues  more »

  • Tons of history surrounds this place. Glad I stopped by to take some pics, read the MS Blues Trail Marker, etc. I like the thing they have to listen to music while you are there. Fun place.
  • DO NOT MISS THIS STOP! (especially if the blues is something you love...) You can not get more of the essence of the Delta than driving the road between Ruleville and Cleveland, Mississippi, and pulling in to Dockery Farms. The flat landscape, the long vistas, the lush trees and the long rows of crops you pass: this is where the blues, now known everywhere, had early beginnings. There is a former filling station -- pull up and read the historic markers and push the button for some music to your ears. Nearby are other outbuildings, a mule barn, and the remains of the front porch of the old commissary (to your left) and a marvelous sign honoring the owning family. This is a wayside stop, a perfect little moment -- not a Disneyland. Remember, this is still a fenced working farm, too, so respect the boundaries. And, by the way, the Roseanne Cash concert in June was held right here and it was fabulous (with local blues groups, too)! Hope there is a concert every year!
  • On June 6th 2015 at around 2pm, my wife and I and two of our friends went to Dockery farms to take a tour. Upon arrival at what I presumed to be the parking lot, a white haired man came charging at me in a blue pickup truck and I really thought he was going to ram us. He waved us to stop and asked what he could do for us. I said we intended to park and take a tour of the place. In a VERY RUDE manner he said they were closed and for me to BACK OUT NOW. I tried to explain that we saw other cars in the parking lot and there were people we could see. There were no signs saying closed or keep out. He again in a VERY RUDE manner said for us to LEAVE NOW, but he did say we could come back at 5. No explanation as to why 5 was ok and 2 was not. I then told him he would never have to worry about us coming ever again, I am 63 years old and this man looked in his 60's as well. I have never felt any more disrespected. We will never be back. I don't have any idea who this man is, but in my opinion, Dockery Farms would be better off to have someone else in charge.
