Education

At Fairview, we want to educate our visitors about the Hagy family and what life was like in early nineteenth-century Southwest Virginia. Preservation and living history interpretation are two important elements in our educational programming. We not only want to weave stories of the past, but also forge ahead and inspire new generations of artisans, farmers, and historians.

Themes at Fairview include:

  • Agriculture, past history and present significance, how we are preserving the past
  • Arts and crafts of the eighteenth- and nineteenth-centuries
  • Domestic life in the eighteenth- and nineteenth-centuries
  • The Great Road and westward expansion, backcountry life
  • The rich history of Washington County, Virginia

Please note that we have limited indoor space. We recommend that field trips during the winter months be limited to one or two groups. We can accommodate much larger groups with advanced planning.
