A Tribute to
The Great River
For countless years the Great River has brought
searchers to this shore; hunters, gathers, fishers,
mound builders, explorers, warriors, trappers,
fur traders, missionaries, and finally settlers,
some to farm, others to trade.
The people of Ferryville salute them all!
Blessed as we are with the beauty of this
broad valley and beyond,
may we and those who follow us here, in the spirit
of the unstoppable flow of water and time,
be worthy of their labors and vision,
and of the greatness of the river which we share.
