If you are reading this, then The Settlers Museum of Southwest Virginia is open! Maybe you've noticed the "closed for winter" signs are gone, or maybe the cars in the parking lot. Hopefully you've noticed the museum is open for the season, and is ready to share the history of Southwest Virginia for another season. This year we want to focus on the experience of our 1890s Farmhouse.
From flax, to classes, to games, to everyday life, we will be trying to recreate some of the experiences of life here on the farm. Life wasn't anywhere near easy here, but there something stirred deep down to see what we came from. So we aim to recreate some of that. While you wait for our programs, stop on down, and let us show you the house!
If you're looking for something cultural this weekend, let us welcome you here to the museum for our Grand Opening event! We will have interpreters giving tours, and sharing our history. We will also be hosting The HendersonJAM kids, performing with traditional Appalachian instruments. Come on out and share in Southwest Virginia heritage!
Tours, music, history, and more will be on display this weekend. So stop by and learn a thing or two about where you're from, and where we came from!
The JAM kids will be performing at 2:00 April 6th, at our shelter weather permitting. We will be in the Farmhouse if it rains or gets too cold.
