Group Description

The Children of Shenandoah are dedicated to preserving the heritage and culture of the people who lived on the land that is now Shenandoah National Park.

These people were forced to leave their homes when the park was created in the 1930's.

The Children of Shenandoah gathers information and makes it available to the public through:

* Educational activities, including public presentations describing how these people lived and how they were effected by the Park's creation

* Providing a supportive atmosphere in which former residents can share their life stories, and recording their oral histories

The Children of Shenandoah is also commited to seeing that other presentations of these people, such as those at the Shenandoah National Park Visitor Center, are historically accurate and do not omit personal losses suffered through the creation of the Park.

Please join us, attend our meetings, and participate in our programs.

The Children of Shenandoah meets the first Monday of October, December, February and April at 7:30 pm at the cafeteria of the William Monroe High School in Stanardsville. And we have an annual "Homecoming" pot luck picnic at the South River picnic grounds in the Shenandoah National Park every June.
