Welcome to Another World

Enter another world one that had existed in the Chesapeake Bay region long before Europeans came to settle here. Follow this trail to a re-created Native American Village, where you will learn about the Eastern Woodland people who lived here when Europeans settlers first arrived.
Leave behind the image of Indians you may have from watching Hollywood Westerns. There were no horses in the Chesapeake Bay region then, and no one wore big feather headdresses.
This trail will take you back to that time. Along the way you will see how the landscape has changed. Step into the past. Imagine that you are a Patuxent Indian. Just a few hundred yards ahead of you is home.
When Captain John Smith sailed up the Patuxent River in August 1608, he recorded his impressions: "The fifth river is called Pawtuxant...Upon this river dwell the people called Acquintanacsuck, Pawtuxant, and Matiapament...they inhabite together, and not so dispersed ast the rest...."
(Inscription under the photo in the upper right) There is more to understanding the past than books can tell us. By experiencing individual lifestyles first hand, we can better appreciate them.
