Not much to see here. There is supposed to be a old still in the back, but it's so run down it doesn't even look it's even taken care of.

Fun little place. Unexpected surprise in the outhouse during tour!!!! Older couple so polite running the shop. It's lighthearted and corny but fun!

I remember this place as a child & I always looked forward & was excited to come here. However they have not updated at all & it does need this. Plus they have let the attraction with the moonshine stills & other things they use to have go to hell. And that is so sad!!!! Fix it back like it... More

The best part was getting the chance see what they label hillbilly homestead and still. The shop is like a flea market but not much to pick from. The arcade games are old and many broken.

From the moment I walked in the door, during the 15 minutes I spent walking around in both sections of the village that sells merchandise and in the rear... More

The place was old and run down. Almost nothing on the shelves... handwritten signs everywhere warning customers to behave. The village out back was a joke, and the "no pictures" sign was funnier- who's want to take pics of it?? With the right marketing, message, and merch this place COULD be awesome. Kinda sad.

Our family of 10 stopped by Hillbilly Village to search for souvenirs and the cashier was very stoic towards us. She didn't display any sense of common courtesy. Being there gave me an uncomfortable feeling, the kind that screamed, "You people aren't welcome here." We noticed that she spoke quite freely to the "white customers". We left rather immediately and... More

I can remember this place when I was little. I always used to love stopping here. However, this was my first time returning in approx 15-20yrs. This place is really has really went down hill & looks very run-down. Very disappointed :(
