A true adventure into the past...
The Settlers Museum of Southwest Virginia is a 67 acre open-air museum that tells the story of the people who settled in the mountains of Virginia and how its unique culture was developed. The Migration Story of the people who came to these mountains in the mid-1700s is a tale of two groups, the Scotch-Irish and the Germans, who carved their farms from the wilderness and formed the mountain culture. The farm, with its restored farmhouse and nine preserved outbuildings, and the 1894 schoolhouse provide a wonderful example of rural life in the late 19th century.
