a stop on the "Crooked Trail", the BRI features old tools, instruments, quilts, and more. New shows keep the place interesting. Unique gift shop.

“Little museum packs a wallop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

If you are looking for a folksy true-to-the-region museum, this is it. I have seen exhibits ranging from moonshine, Appalachian musical instruments, to rock and roll, to name a few. A great addition to the Crooked Road.
