Blue Ridge Mountains

The Blue Ridge Mountains as seen from Blowing Rock, North Carolina.History

The English who settled colonial Virginia in the early 17th century recorded that the native Powhatan name for the Blue Ridge was Quirank.  At the foot of the Blue Ridge, various tribes including the Sioux Manahoacs, the Iroquois, and the Shawnee hunted and fished.

A German physician, John Lederer, first reached the crest of the Blue Ridge near present-day Harper's Ferry in 1669 and again the following year.

As more settlers moved into Virginia, their economic and at times martial competition pushed the native inhabitants west.
