(( For a place that's steeped in the past, Explore Park has seen its share of contemporary changes this year.
Just this month, the park opened a new welcome center.
(/////SOT/////)
[SOT 10:04:39]

((ROGER ELMORE/EXPLORE PARK EXEC. DIR.: WELL, WE HAVE AN INFORMATION DESK THAT CAN TELL PEOPLE ABOUT WHAT THERE IS TO SEE AND DO IN THE ROANOKE VALLEY, AS WELL AS THE AMENITIES OF RESTROOMS AND VENDING MACHINES AND TELEPHONES AND THINGS THAT TRAVELERS LOOK FOR WHEN THEY'RE STOPPING ON THE ROAD.)) [RUNS:15]
Last month, the restored Brugh Tavern re- opened at Explore Park after being moved from Botetourt county.
Despite these modern amenities, it only takes a few steps into the park to realize you're stepping back in time.


The American Frontier experience is captured by interpreters, as well as authentic homes, barns, and other structures.
This blacksmith is hard at work on mantel pieces--
This young woman is busily perfecting her needlepoint, in hopes of impressing her future husband.
And this one- room school house offers a history lesson for today's children about discipline in the 19th century.

((GET THOSE SHOULDERS UP! THAT LOOKS MUCH BETTER. WELL, THE LADIES-- LOOK HOW THE LADIES STRAIGHTENED RIGHT UP. DO YOU SUPPOSE THEY WERE INTIMIDATED BY THIS LITTLE STICK, RIGHT HERE?)) [RUNS:11]
While frontiersmen often entertained themselves throwing tomahawks, they were proficient at hunting for food and making fire.

((SCOTT SARVER/DIR. OF CAPITAL PROJECTS: THIS IS A VERY CRUDE CABIN. IT'S CALLED THE LONG HUNTER'S CABIN. THEY WOULD GO OUT LONG DISTANCES CARRYING LONG GUNS.)) [RUNS:08]
You couldn't tell by looking at his Colonial attire, but Scott Sarver does much of the number- crunching for Explore.
But Sarver says it's his own love of history that keeps him here.
(/////SOT/////)
[SOT tape 1 10:27:26 ]

((SCOTT SARVER/DIR. OF CAPITAL PROJECTS: THIS IS MY PASSION. MY WIFE CALLS IT AN OBSESSION. BUT WE'RE VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE PEOPLE HERE WHO REALLY CARE ABOUT WHAT THEY'RE DOING AND REALLY HAVE A KINSHIP WITH THOSE OF THE PAST. IT'S A VERY NEAT PLACE TO BE.)) [RUNS:14]
Sarver says the Explore Park is also unique because it allows tourists to actually touch a part of history.
But if you want to KEEP it, this gift shop offers several items from historical vendors.
