Muster Grounds at Abingdon
Premier center for Colonial Backcountry history from the American Revolutionary Period in Southwest Virginia. Exhibits help visitors discover what life was like for the Overmountain Men, Backcountry Women, African-Americans and Native Americans, as well as British Loyalists, and a history of Washington County--the Overmountain region of Southwest Virginia. Artifacts used at the Battle of Kings Mountain and others from the late 18th-century Overmountain region are on display. The Eastern National sales area provides something special and unique-for all ages-to take home to remember their experience at the Muster Grounds.
