The small town of Grifton, NC is steeped in local History, a must see is the Catechna Indian Village, on the banks of Contentnea Creek. The village is a scaled-down replica of an Indian village located just across the street from the Grifton Museum. During annual festivals like John Lawson Days, volunteers use the site to demonstrate lifestyle skills of the Native Americans who lived here. The precise location of the actual Catechna village, inhabited by the Tuscaroras in the 1600-1700s, is unknown but the many prehistoric and later artifacts found here indicate that it was very near this site.

Linking North Carolina’s original capital city of New Bern to its current capital of Raleigh, the nearby Neuse River serves as a 250-mile connection between past and future—and the Piedmont and Pamlico Sound. About halfway between Raleigh and the river mouth, the Cliffs of the Neuse rise up as an impressive 100-foot canyon within the coastal plain at Seven Springs. Hiking trails at the surrounding state park explore the riverside habitats and their mature forests and lead to some quiet fishing spots along the waterway.

The Neuse—derived from the Native American Neusiok tribe and translating to “peace”—is an excellent river to experience the striper run, and is home to several species of fish that split their time between the ocean and freshwater, like shad, herring, and American eel. Many endangered species including the Carolina madtom (a freshwater catfish), Tar River spiny mussel, piping plover, dwarf wedge mussel, and loggerhead turtle remain in the Neuse River basin. The Neuse is also home to vital populations of blue crab and oysters. (https://www.americanrivers.org/river/neuse-river/)
