High Bridge Trail State Park continues its series of historical interpretive programs with an Native American history walk on Thursday, August 11 starting at 7:00 p.m.
The Park’s AmeriCorps volunteer, Bob Flippen and special guest Dr. Jim Jordan will lead a short walk from the Farmville train station past Buffalo Creek to a point adjacent to the Smith-Taylor Mound pointing out historical attractions along the way including the N. & W. Passenger Station, Stanley Park, Farmville-Powhatan Railroad, the Junction Canal and the Native American Mound.
After the walk, participants are invited inside the train station to cool off with some lemonade, courtesy of the Friends Group of the High Bridge Trail and enjoy a slide show with Native American relics presented by Dr. Jordan about the Smith-Taylor Mound excavation conducted in the early 1980s.
This program is presented as part of the Virginia State Parks’ 75th Anniversary celebration. For more information or for directions call the Park Office at 434-315-0457.
