Museum planned for blues legend

Fact and fiction are tough to sort out when it comes to legendary blues musicians. When it comes to Robert Johnson the task goes from difficult to impossible, so it's no big surprise that a recent announcement that the house officials believe was born in will be made into a museum has met with at least one claim that it's not the right house.  Right house or not, it is good to know Mississippi will commemorate the blues great with more than the historical marker near his resting place.  The Hazlehurst home officials believe to be the birthplace of the influential musician and prolific writer is slated to be opened as a museum once the estimated $250k needed to get it done is raised.
