This is one of the premier destinations on the Natchez Trace Parkway, as it is where the famed American explorer and leader of the Lewis and Clark Expedition Meriwether Lewis died and was laid to rest.

There are numerous opportunities for Interpretation and this site is perfect for history lovers.
