Mississippi River Basin Model Presentation

May 13 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

No Cost

The Mississippi River Basin model is located in Jackson, MS is a scale replica of the Mississippi River Basin. The Site, which sprawls over 200 acres, was built by local Mississippians and World War II German prisoners-of-war who were housed in Camp Clinton nearby. The model was an imperative scientific experiment that , in the time before computers could efficiently perform complicated numerical analysis, would determine how the mighty Mississippi River could be contained.

This event is to educated Mississippians on the history of the MRBM and Camp Clinton by providing a presentation on both topics and a guided tour of the MRBM.
