Ruby's Nite Spot, operated at this site by Ruby Edwards, was one of the most prominent Blues clubs in the Delta during the 1940s and '50s. Edwards booked nationally-known acts such as T-Bone Walker, Little Walter, and Little Richard, newcomers Ike Turner and Little Milton, and down-home Delta Bluesmen Son Thomas and Eddie Cusic, among many others. Patrons here could dine, drink, dance, and gamble into the wee hours of the morning, long after clubs in nearby Greenville and Indianola had closed.
