June Tolliver House & Folkart Center

Located adjacent to amphitheatre that stages the musical adaptation of John Fox Jr.’s novel, “Trail of the Lonesome Pine”, at the turn of the century, the house was owned by the Duff family who also owned a hotel across the street. Legend has it that Fox’s novel was based on actual people living in the town. Free tours of June Tolliver house are offered. The first floor has antiques from the turn of the century. Throughout the house are paintings that were donated by local artists. The majority of the paintings are of actors and actresses who have previously starred in the drama over the past three decades. The house is a National and Virginia Historic Landmark. The house also serves as a craft/gift shop with items featured from local artists.
