Abingdon Muster Grounds - Field Trip



After visiting the Natural History Museum at the Gray Fossil Site we stopped for a history lesson at Abingdon Muster Grounds. If you have never been here before.. be sure to visit! This place holds much history about the Revolutionary War in our area. The people who work here are friendly and they love sharing the history of this area with you. 









Be sure to stop by the Visitor Center, it's a free exhibit.. however, donations are welcome. Make sure you check out George Washington's Ladle, have a silly laugh dressing up and see how to load and shoot a rifle and musket. 










And before you leave take a walk in your forefathers footsteps.... (The Muster Grounds is the northern trailhead of the 330-mile long Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail).
