Poverty Point UNESCO World Heritage Site
Explore the remnants of a complex array of earthen works that predates the Mayan pyramids. The mounds and ridges form a C-shape with a diameter of nearly three-quarters of a mile. Much of their purpose remains a mystery, although many believe the ridges were used as sites for homes. The site dates to as early as 1700 B.C. and encompasses more than 400 acres. Tram tours of this archeological treasure are offered daily.
