A visit to The Settlers Museum of Southwest Virginia is like stepping one hundred years into the past. Visit this 67 acre open air museum and learn the story of the people who settled the area. View the Migration Story and map at our visitor's center, visit the restored 19th-century living history farm complete with farmhouse and 8 original outbuildings, and tour the restored 1894 one-room Lindamood schoolhouse. There are plenty of opportunities for hiking as the Appalachian Trail runs through the property, as well as Virginia's Wildlife and Birding Trail number MBW10. We invite you to relax with us on the porch at the farm, and learn about life in the mountains over one hundred years ago.

Open:
Tues - Sat: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
