The location of the Jeremey’s Run site immediately south of a complex of springs and marsh, within several rich ecological zones, probably drew prehistoric peoples to this spot for millennia. The relatively confined habitable area contains a concentration of lithic debris (fragments of stone projectile points, tools, and other artifacts) from the Middle Archaic through the Late Woodland periods (ca. 5000 B. C. A. D. 1600), making the site important for understanding prehistoric life in the Shenandoah Valley. The site is one of several sites scattered thought this section of the Blue Ridge Mountain chain were significant evidence of prehistoric occupation has been identified.
