If you are passing through Pocahontas, you might as well see the statue. It doesn’t take long, it’s easy to find, and you can say you were there.

We were surprised to see the huge statue of Pochahontis as we entered the town. It was an interesting exhibit and very informative. There were some beautiful murals on walls behind the statue. Worth a stop if you're in the area

Had a very infomrative plaque tell the timeline of her life and some of the people today that were related to her. The TeePee also has informational signs as well plus places to sit and I do believe there was a picnic table as well.

Aside from the statue of Pocahantas and the teepee, there is an educational board to explain her life. There is also a totem pole showing all the animals and their meanings for Native Americans. Very good stop on main highway.
