|Shenandoah National Park Oral History collection|
|The Shenandoah National Park Oral History collection is now freely available online. The collection consists of 135 interviews of people who were living in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia prior to the creation of the Shenandoah National Park. Most of the interviewees resided on land that was claimed by eminent domain by the commonwealth of Virginia and subsequently turned over to the US government in the 1930s.|
