Catechna Indian Village, on the banks of Contentnea Creek at Grifton, is a scaled-down replica of an Indian village located just across the street from the Grifton Museum. A "short version" of a longhouse illustrates living conditions. The village is surrounded by a palisade of cut, pointed logs set upright for protection from animals and human invaders.
