The Museum of Appalachia is a living history farm, a unique collection of historic pioneer buildings and artifacts assembled for over a half century by John Rice Irwin. Irwin traveled the backroads, amassing thousands of everyday implements from the colorful and compelling Southern Appalachian mountain folk.
The stories of these folk are told in their own words through Museum of Appalachia, and through the artifacts left behind by them. Cabins appear as though the family just left to work in the fields or to go to Sunday meeting.
Stroll through the village. Imagine you're living in Appalachia of yesteryear, cutting firewood, tending livestock, mending a quilt, or simply rocking on the porch, enjoying the glorious views.
