FOXFIRE Living History Day

Annually on May 12
See the days of pioneer Appalachia brought to life by local families and other friends as the Foxfire Museum & Heritage Center hosts a day of living history, with adults and children dressed in 1800s-style clothing, showcasing almost every facet of life from 200 years ago in these mountains. Cooking simple food in a stone fireplace, crafting wood furniture with hand tools, blacksmithing in a coal-fired forge, one-room schoolhouse classes, short traditional church services, plenty of old-time kids’ games (everyone is invited to join in) — all of these activities (and more) bring the Foxfire Museum to life as volunteers recreate the unsophisticated but fulfilling lives of the hardy folks that made these majestic mountains our home.
