Our family visited Foxfire Museum on a Wednesday in May 2013. The cabins were interesting to see. However, the lady in the gift shop (where we paid full price) said two of the cabins would be closed/locked because the people attending them weren't there that day. Turned out there were only 2 or 3 cabins open! Perhaps it's different on weekends, but we left quite disappointed. At the least, it should be a lower price for weekdays if you don't get the full experience.

Love this place. They have archived many historical treasures from the region. It's a great little tour for adults and children alike. They have even saved a wagon from the Trail of Tears, and have it on display.

Tucked away on the side of Black Rock Mountain in NE Georgia is a gem of a museum. It's an outdoor museum with buildings and wagons and mills and other facilities collected around the mountains and brought here to showcase life in early Southern Appalachia.
Impressed mostly by the young high school students of the early 1970's around Rabun County and surrounding areas that didn't want to let THEIR history die and rot away. Collecting various outbuildings and even an old grist mill these farsighted,forward thinking young folks have preserved for us today a treasure,a "living" monument, of these hills for future generations to learn from. My dad had never been here. He has Internal Melanoma Cancer and was afraid he'd pass on without ever seeing this wonderful place. I made a special trip just for him to see it and that has made him so much happier and has brightened his life for a while. Thank you Foxfire and Mr. Wiggington for preserving our past so others can learn from it!

Foxfire are great books - how much better can it be to see old time articles and items... and what better place to have it than in the North Ga mountains
