A.P. Carter's old general store has been converted into a museum that houses the collections of A.P. Carter, his wife Sara and her cousin Maybelle, who as The Carter Family, were the pioneers of what was to become country music. Artifacts include photos, books, and musical instruments, show clothes, 78rpm recordings and many other memorabilia, such as items donated by family members June and Johnny Cash.
Located next door to the museum, is the old log cabin where A.P. was born. Recently restored, it showcases life in southwest Virginia during the early 1900's and includes many family antiques and collectibles.
