Premier center for Colonial Backcountry history from the American Revolutionary Period in Southwest Virginia.  Exhibits help visitors discover what life was like for the Overmountain Men, Backcountry Women, African-Americans and Native Americans, as well as British Loyalists, and a history of Washington County--the Overmountain region of Southwest Virginia. Artifacts used at the Battle of Kings Mountain and others from the late 18th-century Overmountain region are on display. The Eastern National sales area provides something special and unique-for all ages-to take home to remember their experience at the Muster Grounds.
