DescriptionImagine a time before electricity, hot-and-cold running water, and the comfort of department stores. Time felt different then, its rhythm and urgencies shaped by the most basic needs. Visitors to the Foxfire Museum in Mountain City, GA, can imaginatively re-create the works and days of southern Appalachia in the 1800s.

Rooted in the work that hundreds of high school students, in The Foxfire Magazine classes, have put into documenting their local history, the Museum provides visitors a rare glimpse of what life was like for the mountaineers who settled this area. A collection of over 20 historic log cabins and replicas of traditional log construction designs, containing artifacts and crafts in and around the cabins, the Museum provides a glance into the past, including a look at a wagon used in the Trail of Tears—the forced Cherokee migration from these mountains to Oklahoma.

A gift shop filled with pottery, handcrafted items, and books, including The Foxfire Book series, is located in the Gate House. Admission to the Gift Shop is free. Admission to the Museum, which includes one free self-guided tour book per family, is $6.00 per person, ages 11 and older; $3.00 for ages 7-10; children 6 and under are free. Guided tours are also available by appointment.
