Photos & Multimedia

Can't come to the trail in person? No problem! There are still ways to enjoy the Chesapeake National Historic Trail virtually. Here, you can view photos of Chesapeake landscapes, wildlife, and cultural traditions. Dive into the history of a globally significant archeological site by watching two short films about Werowocomoco. Kids (and adults too!) will enjoy our virtual activities and wildlife webcams.
