Delta State University

Prior to the mid 1800s, the area around Cleveland was a vast swamp teeming with insects and snakes, uninhabited by humans. As pioneers pushed westward, land was gradually cleared and drained, revealing fertile fields where cotton became the staple crop.  Today, Cleveland is listed #2 among the top 100 small towns in the United States and is noted for its down-home, friendly, southern hospitality. Agriculture is still important to the area, as well as its rich musical history. With its long history of blues music, Cleveland is home to one of two Grammy museums in the U.S.
