Step back to the days when tales of Huck Finn, river rats, trappers and traders called this waterway home. Massive catfish, strong currents, and steamboats were the heartbeat of life on the river, evidenced by the many trading posts, camps, and Native American tribes peppered along its banks. More than a few explorers would lay claim to lands along these banks. They would change hands swifter than the current itself. Proving that you never know what will pop up along the mighty Mississippi!
