Located in Clarksdale in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, The Clark House is an inviting bed and breakfast that offers a welcome alternative to a standard hotel. Built in 1859 by the founder of the town of Clarksdale, John Clark, the Clark House was the first home to be constructed in the area and today is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Situated in the quiet residential section of the Clarksdale Historic District on two acres of land next to the Little Sunflower River, the house has been beautifully restored and renovated to provide comfortable accommodations with private bathrooms and modern amenities, delicious homemade cuisine, and gracious hospitality. Hailed as the birthplace of the Blues and the site of the historic Crossroads of Highway 61 and 49, Clarksdale has much to see and do in the way of attractions and activities.
