The Frontier Culture Museum, located in Staunton, Virginia 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. The Museum's Old World Exhibits include an Igbo West African Farm, a 1600s English Farm, a 1700s Irish Farm, an Irish Forge, and a 1700s 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 an Eastern Woodland Indian exhibit, a 1760s American Settlement, an 1820s American Farm, an 1850s American Farm, the Mount Tabor Church, and an Early American Schoolhouse.
