GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi Blues Trail Marker commemorating the birthplace of blues legend B.B. King in Leflore County has been returned.

The Greenwood Commonwealth reports (http://bit.ly/1o0tLwI) that 85-pound cast aluminum sign was dropped off at its original location Thursday - propped up against the post where it had been mounted in front of an overgrown cemetery near the intersections of Leflore County Roads 513 and 305.

The sign did not appear damaged other than some scuff marks. Allan Hammons said the marker was taken back to his office at Hammons & Associates advertising agency for some cleaning before being is reattached to the post.

The marker stands near the site in Berclair where once stood the cabin in which Riley B. King, better known as B.B., was born in 1925.
