The Southern Heart of Missouri a Feasibility Study for the Little Dixie National Heritage Area Book Description :

The counties along the Missouri and Mississippi River Valleys have come to be known as Missouri's Little Dixie. These counties had a high slave population prior to the Civil War due to the settlers coming from the Upland Southern slave states of North Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee; bring their slave with them. Today the African-American population in these counties has significantly decreased yet this community had a large impact on the area that can be seen in the resources left behind. This region has a unique history that is important to the National story. In this thesis a Feasibility Study for a National Heritage Area is conducted in order to determine if Missouri's Little Dixie meets the qualifications set out by the National Park Service for designation.
