“Little River” is a grand American story of incredible will and determination. Southeast Missouri, now an agricultural wonder, was once the Great Southeast Missouri Swamp. In 1928, after 8 years of planning and 14 years of backbreaking work, it became the world’s largest drainage project, moving more earth than the construction of the Panama Canal. It is known as The Little River Drainage Project.
