The Museum on Blue Ridge PBS!

Blue Ridge PBS’s wonderful show “Write Around the Corner” recently visited the Mountain Heritage Museum and Gallery right here in St. Paul, and the segment is now online!

They visited with Frank Kilgore, the author of SP’s Far Southwest Virginia: A Postcard and Photographic Journey, to talk about the book and tour the museum. Many of the items featured in the book are on display, along with a whole lot more.

We sure do appreciate the visit, and we hope you enjoy the show!

Museum Holiday Hours and The Occasional Bookstore!

We’re tickled to announce our 2019 holiday hours along with special guests who will be joining us while the museum is open for visits!

Local authors Kari Kilgore and Jason Adams from St. Paul-based Spiral Publishing will be visiting and bringing their forty-plus books, with other great authors joining in the fun. Both Jason and Kari write many stories set in and around Appalachia, and Kari even has a series that takes place mostly here in St. Paul and Castlewood. They’ll have paperbacks, hardcovers, and gift cards available, including Frank Kilgore’s Far Southwest Virginia: A Postcard and Photographic Journey.

Several businesses in town will be open for these special events. Dates and times are below, and we hope you’ll come on by, see our wonderful museum, support our great local businesses, and be sure to say howdy!
