  • This is a very special place, authentic, filled with family stories, and perfect for explaining how the Appalachian peoples survived and thrived in this remote mountain valley. The plaque on the main cabin actually tells you the number of children born in that very structure! And all the smaller outbuildings had their function, which is duly explained by plaques and a little brochure you can pick up at the entrance to the farm. My wife was so inspired that she wants to start gardening/farming like this herself!
  • Really neat place. My 6 yr old also enjoyed it.
  • This is a quick outdoor visit and excellent for young kids to explore and run around. Great depiction of mountain farm life at the turn of the century.
  • Great museum. You actually get to see what life was like more than a century ago. The preservation is up to par. It is a good place for families as kids can run around too. It's also at the beginning (or end) of the river trail which is nice in itself.
  • Very nice example of an old homestead. Bonus was getting to see the elk come down off the mountain.
