Foxfire Museum and Heritage Center Review

In 1966, students at the Rabin Gap-Nacoochee School wrote articles for a magazine based on generations-old family stories. Their excitement in chronicling life in the Appalachians has led to more than a dozen Foxfire books, which have sold nearly 9 million copies. The nonprofit foundation behind Foxfire opened the center to students and teachers worldwide, inviting them to the Foxfire Course for Teachers. A collection of authentic and reconstructed log cabins, a gristmill, a blacksmith's shop, and a church, accessible by a rough gravel road, re-create Appalachian life before the days of electricity and running water.
