Ostenaco is History Alive! at North Bend
January 19, 2020 @ 1:01 am
Recalling the winter of 1759 is part of Ostenaco’s legacy. As a January program, North Bend State Park is an excellent setting for this History Alive! portrayal.
During the French and Indian War, Ostenaco was a leader of Cherokee warriors who allied with Virginia military leaders against northern tribes fighting with the French. His leadership provided a vital alliance for the British colonial settlements in much of present West Virginia. Ostenaco’s influence contributed significantly to the expansion of English-speaking people into Western Virginia. Portrayed by Doug Wood of Hurricane, WV, at North Bend State Park Lodge. Start time is 2:00 p.m. Program lasts about one hour. Family-friendly. Questions and conversation. Open to the public at no cost.
Ostenaco presentation is a History Alive! program made possible by the West Virginia Humanities Council and West Virginia State Park system.
