The Mountain Music Museum contains artifacts that highlight the roots of past country and bluegrass music. Displays and memorabilia honor music pioneers such as the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, Patsy Cline and Tennessee Ernie Ford, along with some current stars from our region, such as Kenny Chesney.

The Mountain Music Museum's mission is to preserve and promote bluegrass, old time, gospel, classic country and Appalachian style music, as well as educating the public through exhibits, jam sessions, instructional workshops, concerts and community festivals. You'll find dozens of displays and one-of-kind vintage photographs, musical instruments, LP recordings and authentic stage attire at the museum.
