The Mississippi River is the third largest river system in the world and, as such, has played an important role in the history of our state and our nation. The river itself, and the search for its source, has captured the imagination of generations of adventurers, explorers, and travellers, many of whom have undertaken or dreamed of the journey to northern Minnesota to see head of the mighty river for themselves.
