Wolf Creek Indian Village

The archeological records state for thousands of years Native Americans had occupied the land known as Virginia today. Between 1490 A.D. and 1530 AD, in what is now known as Bland County, a small group journeyed to a valley nestled between two mountains beside the waters of Wolf Creek. There was natural protection from the harsh winter winds, a
contant source of fresh water, abundant collection of trees, wild game, nuts, herbs, clay and fertile bottom land to grow their crops. The people contructed
a palisade circular village.
It is estimated that as many as 100 people made their home in this village near what we now call Bastian, Virginia. They lived here for several years. Where
they arrived from, where their journey took them to and exactly who they were remains somewhat of a mystery. But they left behind the remains of a
village, and a brief story of living in this place. It is this story that we invite you to experience first hand.

Celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2010, the Blue Ridge Parkway is a product of the New Deal’s efforts to provide jobs to the unemployed of the Great Depression. Construction began in September 1935 at Cumberland Knob near the North Carolina and Virginia state line. The idea was to create a link between the Shenandoah National Park to
the edge of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Completed in 1983, the Parkway’s history has been highlighted by documentarian Ken Burns in the six-part “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea” series originally aired on PBS.
