Welcome to The Museum of Appalachia!
"We simply cannot appreciate where we are today, or understand where we are going tomorrow, unless we understand where, as a culture, we've been in the past.
These are our people. They are world renowned, unknown, famous, infamous, interesting, diverse, different, but above all, they are a warm, colorful and jolly lot, in love with our land, our mountains, and our culture. May their memories ever be preserved - not so much in reverence to them but as a gift to us and to generations to come."
John Rice Irwin, Founder
