Site is around public areas. There are a few markers (on levee side) of Mississippi St. and the actual "dig" area is located on the opposite side (town side). That is the portion on the Register. There is a historical Louisiana Marker on site which I will add for ease of finding site if planning a visit. If you find marker on Mississippi St., you find site. There really is not much to see, unfortunate.

Also see my Waymark located for more pics.
