Very interesting information on the history of this area. There is a video and lots of pictures describing the community that lived along the river when the only travel was by steamboat. Nice setting and wildlife abounds (birds, armadillos!).

The setting is great and the historical photos and movie were enlightening. It is amazing what the area was like in the past and what early settlers had to endure to get here. It is great it is being preserved.
