Museum of Appalachia
Come to the Museum of Appalachia, and step back into the past. The story of our people is told through historic artifacts and the words of those who used, mended, and saved them. The Mark Twain Family Cabin, rare cantilever barn, one-room schoolhouse, and rustic log chapel are among some three dozen historic buildings, set up to look as if the family had just stepped out. The picturesque setting includes gardens, farm animals and split-rail fences. Exhibit halls contain thousands of authentic artifacts. Regional handicrafts are offered at the gift shop. Home-style cooking and fresh-from-the garden produce are cafe specialties. Facility rentals are available for weddings, meetings, reunions & other special occasions. The Museum, a non-profit organization, is an official affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution.
