The Historic Park In Virginia That’s Like Something From The Old West
The Old West is alive and well at Wilderness Road State Park in Ewing.
This southwest Virginia state park is relatively unknown to the the rest of the state, and yet its attractions and authentic pioneer feel are reason enough to make the trip. While it’s not unusual to find reenactments and historical demonstrations in Virginia, few are geared towards the kind of lifestyle that evolved in this part of the state. Here’s more on why this season is the perfect time to make your trek to Wilderness Road State Park.
