1. Native American Indian Levee Marker
Inscription.  Archaeological excavation conducted during the construction of the levee in the 1970's revealed that this region was host to Native American peoples as long ago as 12,000 years. We pay tribute to the early inhabitants of this region of the country and to those who studied and preserved their legacy.
