There are many attractions to see while here in the Puxico area.  Here is a list of some that you won't want to miss!

Berry-Glenn Historical Museum -- The depot was built in 1902 on the Hoxie branch of the Frisco RR.  The building was originally located where First Midwest Bank now sits.  Puxico was a major stop on the line that Louis Houck's railroad crew built through the swamps from Cape Girardeau southward.  The  railroad was a large factor in the establishment and growth of Puxico.  More information can be found in the Puxico Centennial book, a copy of which is at the museum.

The museum houses many items pertaining to the history of the town and things that people in the area used in their everyday lives.  There are exhibits of historical pictures and documents, school memorabilia, antique farm tools, children's toys and many other items of interest.  Special events during the summer include art and photography shows, and the annual quilt show held the second week of August during Homecoming.

Duck Creek State Wildlife Management Area









Indian Hills Winery  began the summer of 2005 when we ordered 500 Chambourcin vines and started planting in the Spring of 2006. We now have around 1030 vines of both red and white varieties and a place to make wine commercially. Nicole and I love meeting new people and visiting with them. We look forward to meeting and talking with you. Hope to see you soon.




Mingo National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1944 under the authority of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act as a resting and wintering area for waterfowl and other migratory birds, and for the preservation of bottomland hardwood forest.


Lake Wappapello is a place to sleep under the stars. A place to fish. A place to hike, to mountain bike, to backpack, to camp. Lake Wappapello has a little something for everyone. Blue waters and abundant fish make the lake ideal for fisherman who want to fish for crappie, catfish and bass. Miles of trails throughout the park offer great scenery and picturesque views.
