Foxfire will be generously hosting us on their secluded mountain top property all weekend! This is a fantastic opportunity to take a step into Appalachian history!
"The Foxfire Museum & Heritage Center brings the collected works to life in a hands-on, interactive experience less than two hours’ drive from Atlanta, Asheville, Greenville, and Knoxville. Students invested royalties from The Foxfire Book to establish this extraordinary facility as a living legacy of the people whose lives and stories they chronicle and cherish.
The museum at Foxfire comprises over 106 acres on which students have relocated 10 authentic pioneer log cabins and built more than a dozen other structures from period materials, following traditional methods of construction. 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."
