The Museum

The Foxfire Museum is an eight-acre outdoor village with over 20 historic log buildings, less than two hours’ drive from Atlanta, Asheville, Greenville, and Knoxville. . This museum was created in part by local high school students, who began The Foxfire Magazine and The Foxfire Book series. Students used royalties from these publications to buy a piece of property on Black Rock Mountain, adjacent to the current state park.

The property is filled with artifacts, tools, and handcrafted housewares, toys and folk art, providing a glimpse into the lives of the people who tamed and thrived in the Appalachian wilderness more than 180 years ago. Additionally, The Foxfire archive, housed at the museum and at University of Georgia’s Russell Library, features recorded interviews, transcriptions, photographs, and film collected by the Foxfire students over the lifetime of the program.
