One of the most photographed spots on the parkway. There is an interpretive trail with exhibits about Appalachian life. On Sundays there are often informal music gatherings. Weekend exhibits are not uncommon. If you get a chance, go visit the Meadows of Dan, at milepost 177.7. Very sweet little town.
Many items in the collection have been presented over the past 140 years by the individuals who used them. Cadet guided tours are offered daily (dependent on cadet availability) at 12:00 noon departing from the lobby
