Fodor's Review

Louis Jolliet, the first European to see the Mississippi River, and his fellow explorers used this 1683 house as a base for westward journeys. Today it's the lower station of the funicular. A monument commemorating Jolliet's 1672 trip to the Mississippi stands in the park next to the house, which is at the foot of the Escalier Casse-Cou (Breakneck Staircase).
