Pioneer Village

Pioneer Village is a replica of just how the ole mountain towns used to be. A mercantile store with products and goods that only your grandmother might recognize. An old, one room schoolhouse, a log home with furnishings just like it was in the 1800's, a smoke house, barn and corn crib are just like it was then. It takes you back.
