The Native American Burial Site Found In West Virginia Is A Historical Wonder
The Mountain State has a rich Native American history with many families in some way descendants of one Native American society or another. And while our roots will always be entrenched in our home state of West Virginia (created in 1863), our heritage extends back thousands of years. Our state is home to numerous Indian Mounds, including the largest one in the world located in Moundsville (you can read all about that one in this previous article…).
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
