The Bible Museum and El Song Gardens are in Monroe, LA.
I see they have started charging to enter this year. Everything has always been free there in the past or anything I have been too. Times must be tough for them too.

Riverland, I've been to poverty point, A great archeological site.
Sarge you neglected to mention one of your famous sites. The Bell Witch Cave by Clarksville. Been there too. I swear she followed us all the way thru Tenn all because i stole a rock from her cave.

Arkansas has a diamond mine open to public. A state park on top of a mountain. MT Magazine. 2 national forests, and Hot Springs,

We have a local Cave called Ben White Cave but is close temp. for now due to the white fungus thing on bats noses so it dont spread. several caves round here are.

I've never heard of Poverty Point. Sounds interesting. You don't want to go to the Diamond Mine in the summer. It's one big open field of dirt with no shade. It's a spring or fall thing.

Sarge, we are just 'down the road' from you near Huntsville, AL. Have taken rides on the motorcycle near you. We often run up to Bell Buckle TN. It's what we used to call a 'poke and plumb' town...by the time you poke your head out the car window, you're plumb out of town! But the Bell Buckle cafe is wonderful. There are several small shops that are worth browsing and an old drugstore that sells wonderful hand-dipped icecream.

Huntsville has the Space and Rocket Center which is really interesting, plus a museum, a hands-on science center mostly for kids, an old RR Depot, Early Works (children's learning center and museum about Alabama) and of course a Botanical Garden.

The Mobile area has Bellingrath Gardens and Home, USS Alabama Battleship Park, and Civil War forts Blakeley, Gaines, and Morgan. The downtown area has the old live oaks and antebellum and victorian houses.

Jcalhoun, I drove thru MISS.,ALA.,GEOR,and NC several years ago just to see the country. Drove on secondary roads all the way. I missed my turnoffs so many times because i was looking at the beautiful old houses instead of roadsigns. I also learned to go to the police station for dirctions. They know the roads and give good directions.
