Mission Statement

The mission of the Frontier Culture Museum is to increase public knowledge of the formation of a distinctive American folk culture from the synthesis of European, African and indigenous peoples. The museum uses historic structures, artifacts, and living history interpretation to represent how immigrants to America lived in thir homelands, crossed the Atlantic, and traveled from coastal ports into the Shenandoah Valley. These travelers built farms along the early Western Frontier where they and their descendents formed a new American culture.

Description

The Frontier Culture Museum brings to life four different historical cultures(Germany, Northern Ireland, England, America) complete with rare breed animals, along with a working blacksmith forge, to teach about life before immigration and about the lives immigrants established once they arrived in Virginia.
