The Center for Pioneer Life
Preserving the legacy of the Southern Appalachian pioneer families who settled this region and experiencing how they lived.
Our Mission is to share the lifeways of Southern Appalachian pioneer families through experiential education and community programming that inspires visitors to bring the resiliency and creative spirit of the pioneers into their own lives.
We offer four main types of specialized programming:
Field trips for local schools and homeschool groups, as well as other community groups
Hands-on workshops in traditional skills
Community conversations and guest lectures
Special seasonal events, such as our Fall Festival
