New River Gorge National River
This valley has drawn human inhabitants for thousands of years. The earliest people were hunter –gatherers who moved with the seasons on the trail of game animals. Then came the early woodland tribes who cultivated fields and built palisaded villages. This land later became the often shared and sometimes contested hunting grounds of the Shawnee, Cherokee and Iroquois Indians.
