Not Just Our History, but American History
There is a wealth of history to be discovered at the Big Sandy Heritage Museum. Come and see the tools utilized by our ancestors to tame the wilds of Appalachia. View artifacts from our history that both inspire and serve as a reminder of the costs paid and the mistakes made to shape the modern day world. Included in these exhibits are Hatfield McCoy artifacts, exhibits on Native American culture from our region, as well as African American history and the significance the area had during the Civil War. There is so much to learn, and there is no better place to experience our culture than the Big Sandy Heritage Museum. Plan your visit today!
