Louisiana Purchase Memorial, Lee County

Louisiana Purchase Memorial
8X10, Oil on Panel

Been a while since I've posted anything!!  I have been working quite a bit and have several things that need to be posted.  This is stone marker is located in the Louisiana Purchase State Park at the corner of Lee, Phillips and Monroe Counties.  It marks the location where surveyors began the process of determining exactly what Thomas Jefferson had purchased from France.  An interested individual could get here by way of a nice boardwalk through the swamp.  Since I was looking pretty much into Lee County from Monroe County, I decided to count this one to Lee County.


  1. Thanks Brenda! I need to go to Lee County again. There's a lot I feel I missed.
