Foxfire Collections

When Foxfire students began interviewing residents and craftspeople of the Southern Appalachians, they also started to collect artifacts representative of the region. Among these items were tools, furniture, toys, art, textiles, and so much more. Each artifact told a story of a person or a place, and was kept in the Foxfire classroom, where it was shared with students. Eventually, these collections outgrew this space, and the artifacts were reloacted to the Foxfire Museum and Heritage Center where they are now on display for all to see. However, some artifacts are old and fragile, and must be kept in special storage to protect them. Digital exhibits allow us to share these objects with all, though, so that their stories may not be forgotten.
