Digging up the past in NE Louisiana

It is almost mid February and the long winter is almost behind us.  Have you started planning your next trip?  Why not combine a little history in with the fun.  Did you know that there is an ancient historical site in the US that dates back to the Egyptian Pyramids, before the Mayan Pyramids?  Nestled on the banks of the Mighty Mississippi just northwest of Jackson MS and northeast of Monroe LA is Poverty Point.   A vast 400 acre site, integrated complex of earthen monuments, constructed 3,100 – 3,700 years ago dating back to pre-Mayan civilization.

For more information see:

Poverty Point is about 250 miles north of Woodridge B&B.  Take in lots of history by putting Poverty Point in your plans pre or post your stay.
