The Rural Life Museum is a significant component of the college’s cultural and educational services. Its resources, collections, and programs are developed and administered in support of the various disciplines of the academic program and of community services through tours, workshops, lectures, and internships.
The museum facilitates the collection, preservation, exhibition and interpretation of rural life artifacts relevant to the history and culture of the Southern Appalachian region. Through its exhibits and educational program the museum assists students, faculty members, and other patrons in understanding rural heritage.
