River City Chapter is named for the predominant geographical feature in the region,
the Mississippi River. The mighty Mississippi, a major artery for our nation, played
an important part in the settlement of this area. It is the western boundary for
Shelby County and is of great economic and cultural value to all communities within
its watershed. The river holds importance and will continue to for centuries to come.
