The Foxfire Vision

Foxfire is a nationally-recognized heritage preservation organization and a model for how learner-centered education enriches students and their communities and builds connections across generations.

The Foxfire Mission

Foxfire’s mission is to preserve the diverse traditions of Southern Appalachia and advance the understanding and appreciation of cultural heritage through public programs, publications, and learner-centered education.

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.

Help us grow our museum programming by donating to our Giving Tuesday campaign.
