Baptist Town, established in the 1800s, in tandem with the growth of the local cotton industry, is one of Greenwood's oldest African-American neighborhoods. Known for its strong sense of community, it is anchored by the McKinney Chapel M. B. Church and a former cotton compress. In Blues lore Baptist Town is best known through the reminiscences of David "Honeyboy" Edwards, who identified it as the final residence of Robert Johnson, who died just outside Greenwood in 1938.
