Welcome to Indianola, the home of B.B. King and the B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center. From B.B. King’s historic Club Ebony to the final resting place of Charley Patton, the father of the blues, Indianola will deliver stories that literally shaped modern music – stories you won’t find anywhere else.
Take a walking tour of historic Indianola and see sites such as the Minnie Cox Post Office, named for the first African American postmistress in the United States; the childhood home of Craig Claiborne, former food editor of the New York Times and acclaimed author and chef; the Henry Seymour Library which exhibits Indianola and Sunflower County history and an extensive collection of Walter Anderson artwork; and so much more! There’s nothing store-bought about this experience – it’s the real deal.
Indianola is home to 25 restaurants (Indianola Dining PDF) serving everything from Southern cooking to gourmet pizza, soul food to catfish pate. The city offers 204 hotel rooms (Indianola Lodging PDF) in which to dream those blues-tinted dreams.
