The Great River Road in Illinois

Tower Rock is a small, rocky island on the Missouri side of the Mississippi River. The rock has long been feared by riverboat captains because of the rapid current that swirls at its base. This navigational point for early explorers was visited by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, as well as Catholic missionaries.
