Hickory Ridge Homestead Museum, an Appalachian Frontier Tradition
The Hickory Ridge Homestead was created in 1980 to enhance visitors’ imagination and understanding about the people of the Appalachians in times gone by. The museum serves two main purposes contributing to the Southern Appalachian Historical Association mission. The first is to give the visitor some insight into the lifestyle of the early mountain settlers, how they lived and what constitutes “typical” mountain homestead. Secondly, the everyday lifestyle is preserved by the museum through recreating a day in the time of our self-sufficient forefathers. From these ideas grew the whole concept of a living history museum and workshop for hands-on activities and programs.
Come and walk with us into history. Trace the steps centuries ago when America was merely a wild continent richly endowed with raw materials. Learn how the pioneer settlers faced this fertile environment with limited facilities but with a will for survival.
The Hickory Ridge Homestead Museum is open Mid-June through Mid-August, Tuesday through Sunday, 5:00 PM till 8:00pm.
