The Smyth County Historical & Museum Society was founded in 1961 to preserve the County's heritage through the collection of artifacts, photographs and manuscripts and presentation of public programs and publications. Since its founding, the museum has acquired an impressive collection from prehistoric to the modern era. Two collections of special significance are the Southwestern State Hospital Collection of artifacts and photographs from 1887 through the 1950's and a collection of period clothing and textiles from 1808-1965. The Museum is currently under construction and will open to the public as soon as possible.
