Historical Significance

This site illustrates how the cultures of Shenandoah Valley settlers from the 1700s through the 1800s blended in America to create an entirely new way of life. Farmsteads from England, Germany, Northern Ireland and soon from Africa showcase the cultures of these early settlers who arrived via the Wilderness Road.


Frontier Culture Museum Today

Visit Europe and America's past at four different historic farms moved from their country of origin and reconstructed at the museum site in Staunton, Virginia. See the rare and minor breed animals, walk through authentic gardens, help harvest period crops, watch a blacksmith at work, and visit with the farm interpreters to share a lesson of courage, heritage and determination.
