Mission

To convey to visitors an appreciation of the scope of DeSoto's expedition, the knowledge of the lands and peoples that was gained despite great hardships and the continuing frustration of the explorer's purpose and motives, and the impetus which the hard earned knowledge may have given to the exploration and the eventual settlement of the United States.
