Looking Across Frog Level Swamp

Pictured is part of Frog Level Swamp located west of the Tombigbee River north of the old Bean’s Ferry site. This wetlands area is located at the confluence of Mantachie Creek and the Tombigbee River. Much of the area was patented by James Asbury Blanton during 1838. This marsh area covers nearly four square miles of land and is located just a few miles north of the site of Van Buren, one of the earliest river port towns in Itawamba County.
