Museum of Appalachia
Called the most authentic and complete replica of pioneer Appalachian life in the world, the Museum of Appalachia is a mountain village of about 30 old buildings rescued and retrieved from other sites, then painstakingly reconstructed by traditional methods to form an authenic mountain village.
The museum opened in 1960, in a single log building on a 2-acre piece of ground. Now the museum covers 65 acres.
It is open the year 'round and is only closed on Christmas Day.
There are three special annual events:
