Poverty Point State Historic Site

by vigi

This is supposed a rich culture flourished 12 centuries before Christ. Unfortunately, I am not really into history, and besides a hugh site of grassland and small hills without shelter, I saw nothing here, except the museum and movie shown inside the museum.

1730 BC!

by turnip2000

Poverty Point, known for its mound construction, is an archaeological site in northeastern Louisiana (near the town of Epps), overlooking the Mississippi River flood plain. The name derives from the Poverty Point plantation, which included the site's land in modern times. It was constructed c. 1730 BC–1350 BC by American Indians of the archaic Poverty Point culture that inhabited the Mississippi Delta at that time, and continued to develop further in the centuries to come.The earthen structures were built and enlarged for centuries, with the site reaching its final form at about 1000 BCE. It is referred to by some as the first true city of North America, although the population is unlikely to have exceeded 2000 individuals at any time.

There is a nice visitors center and if you like this type of history, you will enjoy yourself...pick a "not so" hot day. Tram tours are given daily at 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3:30, from March 1 through October 31.

Mexican

by turnip2000 about Ernesto's Mexican Restaurant

Well, this place used to rock the house and I have some of my best Monroe memories from the place, but the last time I went there the food wasn't so great. In spite of that it isn't a chain. It is located in an old house on the edge of Monroe's Garden District area (you ch is very nice). Oh yeah, the service is usually excellent......and hmmmmm.....everything?

North Louisiana

by jaros

Think of Monroe as being a chocolate kiss smack-dab in the middle of a peanutbutter cookie, and you'll have a picture of how it fits into northeast Louisiana.

New Orleans dominates south Louisiana, but, although the land does indeed drop off just south of New Orleans, the world does not drop off to the north of that vibrant city. Rather, the land rolls right on up alongside the Mississippi River and spreads out to accommodate the rest of the country and its cultural variations.

On the coast, New Orleans lies below sea-level. But in the north of the state, fifty miles west of Monroe rises Driscoll Mountain, the highest geographical point in the state of Louisiana. The mountain lifts its less-than-imposing 520 feet above sea-level in the midst of rolling piney hills. There's nothing thrilling about it, but it is the sort of everyday trivia that keeps life fascinating.

"Poverty Point Archeological site"

About fifty miles to the east of Monroe lie the remaining earthworks of one of the oldest constructions in North America. Little is known about the prehistoric builders other than what can be deduced from the type of construction, the location, and the artifacts.

Farmers used to work the odd rises and valleys, not understanding that they were slowly chewing away at an awesome pre-Colombian settlement.

Today, it's protected from depredation and worth a side trip from highway I-20 near the Mississippi state line. One can walk around the central mound and the surrounding mounded arcs that were possibly used as building platforms for housing. One can understand the convenience of locating a major center here because of nearby waterways. The site museum displays artifacts recovered during excavations. My favorites are the distinctive clay cooking balls which were heated and then dropped into pots because pottery had not yet developed to the point that cooking pots could be put directly over fire.

Why the name Poverty Point? It has nothing to do with the ancient settlement which apparently was flourishing for several centuries. Rather, the 19th and 20th century farmers trying to make a living there were indeed impoverished.
