Description:

This museum was conceived as a place to preserve the history of our area with a focus on the schools of Wise County. In 2002, the June Tolliver House provided Garnett Gilliam, a local teacher and historian, two rooms to display his collection of photographs, yearbooks, and other artifacts. As others made donations to the collection it was soon evident that additional space was needed. A committee was formed and James Maurice Fraley, an ardent supporter, chaired a fundraising campaign to build a place to preserve our heritage. In September of 2006, the Lonesome Pine Arts and Crafts Association offered a house that was being used as storage for the Lonesome Pine Drama as a potential site for the expansion. Remodeling began and the center was opened in May of 2007.
