Robertson Mountain Site

VLR Listing Date


NRHP Listing Date


NRHP Reference Number


One of the few sites in the Shenandoah National Park to provide clear evidence of stratified cultural deposits, Robertson Mountain was occupied by Native Americans for the entire span of the Archaic period (8000 1000 B.C.), making it a valuable record of cultural and environmental changes in the Blue Ridge. Scientific excavation of the elevated site may provided information on food gathering activities in the highland zone. In one of the most botanically unaltered sections of the park, the site is a reminder of the habitat in which the first inhabitants of the mountains flourished for thousands of years.
