Preserving Pocahontas

Preserving Pocahontas celebrates the 50th Annual Pioneer Days with this photograph of the first Pioneer Day Parade in 1967. A pair of walkers in pioneer dress make their way along Main Street in Marlinton as children step out on the street to get a closer look at the horse-drawn covered wagon in the distance. The reviewing stand can be seen on the right. Photo courtesy of M. Balister, ID: PHP000863
