NEW SPRING HOURS

Discover Foxfire!

Hike through history at our Appalachian Village made up of over 20 historic log structures, each home to various artifacts representative of life in the mountains. Discover all that the spacious outdoor museum offers, including a half-mile walking trail and ample space to social distance. Put on your walking shoes and come for a visit!

Hands On History

Get hands on with history by visiting one of our on-site demonstrators! From weaving to blacksmithing, these talented individuals bring the past to life. Learn about the role these crafts played in everyday life, and how they’ve been adapted to the modern era. 

Join the Foxfire Family

We rely on folks just like you for support of our education and preservation efforts. It’s through the generous gifts of our members and donors that Foxfire has maintained its mission for over 50 years! Thanks to our extended Foxfire family, we have supported local youth through our student enrichment programs, preserved Southern Appalachian culture with community-based cultural preservation projects, and maintained our 106-acre museum and heritage center for the public to enjoy. Now you can join these efforts and more by donating to Foxfire, becoming a member, or both!

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.
