Potters’ Marsh has been a magnet for outdoor enthusiasts for hundreds of years. The wetlands in this marsh are a safe-haven for many birds and animals. As early as 500AD, Potters’ Marsh was an area providing food and shelter from inclement weather for the Woodlands Indians. These Indians were hunter/gatherers, holding ground along the banks of The Mighty Mississippi River. The Woodlands Indians called this spot home for over 500 years, fishing and hunting to sustain their families. Right inside the Thomson Causeway Park, there are still remnants of these Indians. The place they chose to bury their elders is right along the river, with a million dollar view of pool 13, stretching out for miles. As you visit this site, you will see why the Woodlands Indians called this place home.
