UNESCO World Heritage Sites

UNESCO World Heritage sites are selected for their educational, scientific and cultural importance, and it’s not surprising that Mississippi River Country is home to several attractions that have earned this distinction. From Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings in Illinois and Wisconsin to the monumental earthworks of Poverty Point in Louisiana, these sites tell the rich story of the Mississippi River states.
