- We are on a Four-Hundred-Years-of-History road trip
across the Commonwealth of Virginia. In the Blue Ridge Mountains,
Explore Park interprets what life was like,
in the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries
of Western Virginia. Knowledgeable historians
in period costumes tell visitors about life in each of the centuries.
In the land that was to become the United States of America,
the seventeenth century was a time of great change for indigenous people like the small populations of Toteroâ€™s
that lived in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The now-extinct Toteroâ€™s were an Eastern woodland society.
Virginiaâ€™s Explore Park has reconstructed a Sixteen-Seventy-One Totero Village.
