Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia

The Frontier Culture Museum located in Staunton, VA is a living history museum that tells the story of the people who migrated from the Old World to America and the life they created in the Shenandoah Valley. The Museum is made up of original or reproduced examples of traditional buildings from the Old World and America.

Many of the early immigrants to the Shenandoah Valley were farmers seeking opportunities for a better life; others were unwilling captives brought to work on farms and plantations. The Museum’s Old World Exhibits include a West African Farm, an English Farm, an Irish Farm, an Irish Forge, and a German Farm. These people eventually became Americans and contributed to the success of the colonies and the United States. The Museum’s growing American Exhibits currently comprise a 1740s American Settlement, a 1820s American Farm, a 1850s American Farm, and recently an Early American Schoolhouse.
