Join us as we explore Greenbrier Valley and the surrounding area, beginning with historic Lewisburg. Named one of National Geographic's "Best Small Town Escapes," Lewisburg is surrounded by rolling hills, mountain forests and picturesque farmlands. Venture onto the grounds of the exclusive Greenbrier resort for an expert-led field trip of the Cold War Bunker, experience the traditional music, stories, arts and crafts of the Appalachians, and learn about the cultural heritage of this unique region.


• Learn about the lives and work of coal miners during a field trip to the Beckley Exhibition Coal mine and Coal Camp.
• Visit the beautiful Greenbrier Resort and take a step back in time to the Cold War as we explore the Cold War bunker there.
