2. New Bordeaux Worship Site Monument -
West Side
The worship site is located on a hill that overlooks the waters of Little River and Long Cane Creek. At the time the structure stood, the view was probably clear. Now, a forest of pines covers the clear view. A short walk, however, will reveal a spectacular view of the peaceful waters.
