The museum at Foxfire comprises over 106 acres on which students have relocated 10 authentic pioneer log cabins and built more than a dozen other structures from period materials, following traditional methods of construction. The property is filled with artifacts, tools, and handcrafted housewares, toys and folk art, providing a glimpse into the lives of the people who tamed and thrived in the Appalachian wilderness more than 180 years ago. Additionally, The Foxfire archive, housed at the museum and at University of Georgia’s Russell Library, features recorded interviews, transcriptions, photographs, and film collected by the Foxfire students over the lifetime of the program.By using our Mountain City online attractions planner, you can arrange your visit to Foxfire Museum and other attractions in Mountain City.

Bring your walking shoes. What a beautiful museum hidden in the mountains. Would encourage anyone to make the trip. The cabins are lovingly preserved and it is a good glimpse into the not so distant past. Left wondering how on Earth we used to live that hard life. Glad to have picked up some more of their books in the fascinating gift shop! Worth a visit! Especially as we move into the beautiful falls months !
Great heritage experience. The craftsmanship and ingenuity of our ancestors is remarkable. "These are my people; this is where I come from."
