The Foxfire Mission

Foxfire’s mission is to preserve and develop the public’s appreciation for Southern Appalachian culture – its history, people, and traditions – through artifacts, oral history, and programs that interpret, document and celebrate the region, and fosters self-directed, community-based classroom instruction following the Foxfire Core Practices.

Books, Magazines, Handmade Soaps & more!

Check out our online museum store for Foxfire books, magazines, locally-made goods, and more! Delve into over 50 years of Appalachian culture and heritage through our publications, support Foxfire artisans by purchasing traditionally-made products, or show your love of Foxfire with a t-shirt, sticker, and other Foxfire-branded goods.

Become a Member!

Foxfire is built from community. From our Foxfire student alumni and local contacts to those who have come to love Foxfire over the years through its magazines and books, our strength is the community of folks who have supported us over the years. Our members receive complimentary access to everything we have to offer — exhibitions, historic structures, gardens and trails, special activities, as well as discounts on craft classes and workshops throughout the year.
