The Original Residents
Pemberton Park Historic Trail
The illustrations of John White, the basis for this DeBry etching, are an important source of information about the first Americans. White visited coastal Native American villages as far north as the Chesapeake Bay in the 1500s. Stone tools used by native people in this region include a grinding stone, a mortar for grinding seeds and grains, and a full-grooved archaic-period ax.
