Celebrate July 4th with the explosion of sound that pioneers would have heard thunder through the hills when they would "shoot the anvil" to acknowledge the nation’s Independence. Today, shooting the 175 pound anvil, an almost lost tradition, raises a roar of excitement from the Museum’s guests. A family friendly day, guests will enjoy a host of Patriotic demonstrations and activities, including Betsy Ross sewing the flag, the National Bell ringing and Liberty Pole raising. A non-profit organization, the Museum’s mission is to preserve Appalachian artifacts and instill in the community—regionally, nationally, and internationally—a greater knowledge of, and appreciation for, the Appalachian heritage. The Shop at the Museum of Appalachia features handiwork from Appalachian artisans, books authored by regional writers and unique "Made in America" gifts. The Museum's quaint restaurant offers hot country style lunches, fresh‐from‐the‐garden vegetables, and mouth‐watering home-style desserts. Facilities are available for weddings, reunions, meetings and other events. The Museum is located 16 miles north of Knoxville, one mile east of I-75, Exit 122.
