Shenandoah National Park

A modern-day photograph shows the mountains and rich farm valleys that can be seen from Shenandoah National Park in the northern Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Controlled by American Indians for millennia prior to European contact, the area west of the Blue Ridge was first opened for settlement by whites early in the eighteenth century.
