Established in 1979 and re-organized as a stand-alone museum in 1999, the Delta Blues Museum is a place "where visitors find meaning, value, and perspective by exploring the history and heritage of the unique American musical art form of the blues."
Notably, the museum houses the shack where Muddy Waters spent his youth on the Stovall Plantation.
The museum has been located in a former railroad depot since 1999. The building, constructed circa 1918, served as the passenger rail depot of the Yazoo and Mississippi Valley Railroad.
Across the street is Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero blues club.
Mirador de la Flor ("Lookout of the Flower") is a monument in Corpus Christi, Texas that was unveiled in 1997 to honor Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, the Tejano singer who was murdered by her assistant and head of her fan club Yolanda Saldívar, two years earlier at the age of 23.

10 Cedarwood Rd is the address of Bono's childhood home in Dublin. It's also the subject of the U2 song, "Cedarwood Rd."
The song was featured on Episode 42 of the Song Exploder podcast. No word on whether it will show up uninvited on the next Apple device launch.
