Tazewell, VA (WVVA) – The Crab Orchard Museum in Tazewell invites you and your family to celebrate an old-fashioned Independence Day with them.
On Thursday, July 4, the Crab Orchard Museum will be hosting a day full of activities for families to come out and enjoy.
Costumed interpreters will demonstrate pioneer skills throughout the day, including woodcarving, chair caning, quilting, colonial cooking, butter making, long rifle firing, blacksmithing, cross cut sawing, weaving, lucet and finger weaving, cannon firing and more in the Pioneer Park.
Lunch food, snacks and drinks will be available on site from the Timbo’s and Appalachy Kettle Corn, and the museum center will be open too, featuring the “Flavors of the Past” Appalachian Culinary Traditions exhibit.
