Update about blog

Come on over to my other blog, Alchemy of Clay and Living in Black Mountain NC, where the scenery and my ceramic arts life are combined. I've moved some personal blog posts, (as well as those that are about my ancestors) back here.

Nansemonds and Suffolk city council work on terms for Mattanock Town project

SUFFOLK VA:The city and the Nansemond Indian Tribal Association have signed an agreement that clears the way for the transfer of city park land to the tribe for an Indian cultural center and tourist attraction.
The signing was announced by the city late Thursday. The agreement broke a deadlock that threatened the tribe's plans to build Mattanock Town, a replica Indian village on 71 acres in city-owned Lone Star Lakes Park.
The city's announcement said keys to the property were handed to tribal leaders following the signing.
Going back in earlier articles shows the efforts that have taken place since the town agreed to the idea proposed by the Nansemonds.
