The Earthworks At Louisiana’s Poverty Point Look Like Something From Another Planet

Long before there were Cajuns, there was a community that lived along Bayou Macon over 3,000 years ago. They didn’t leave much behind, forcing archaeologists and historians to piece together the puzzles through artifacts found through digs and research throughout the years. Few places can compare to Poverty Point in Louisiana, one of the most historic hidden gems in the Pelican State. Let’s check it out.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Poverty Point is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. To learn more, be sure to check out the Poverty Point website and give it a follow on Facebook.
