This site illustrates how the cultures of Shenandoah Valley settlers from the 1700s through the 1800s blended in America to create an entirely new way of life. Farmsteads from England, Germany, Northern Ireland and soon from Africa showcase the cultures of these early settlers who arrived via the Wilderness Road.
