  • Residential Property owners in Mississippi receive a tax credit on their property. In order to receive this credit you must live in the property on January 1st of the year, and apply for the exemption at your local tax accessor’s office. If you are 100 percent disabled or age 65 or older, then the first $75,000 of property assessed value is exempt from any tax.

  • U.S.Highway 61 meanders south from Memphis Tennessee through DeSoto County and into the Mississippi River Delta. This was the route that all the famous Blues singers and players traveled going north to the "Big Cities" looking for fame and fortune.

    B.B.King, Muddy Waters, "Howlin" Wolf, and yes even Oprah Winfrey traveled this "Blues Highway" out of the cotton fields of the Delta and into the hearts of people everywhere. It was not an easy road to travel, but we are all better because they came.

    Spend a peaceful day at Blues Highway Gateway Visitors Center (see picture) and enjoy the memories of the past.
