One of the eight major venues on the Crooked Road-Virginia's Heritage Music Trail, the original Country Cabin was built in 1937-38 with the encouragement of local musician Kate OíNeil Peters Sturgill, a ballad singer and songwriter. Country Cabin II was built in 2002 to accommodate larger audiences and to host a wider variety of programs. In addition to clogging classes, the site continues to host local musicians and bands performing bluegrass, country and old-time music throughout the year. It is also the site of the annual Dock Boggs Festival. The Country Cabin with its descendant, Country Cabin II, are the oldest continuously operating site for traditional music in the heart of Appalachia. Dancers are welcome, but there is no smoking or alcohol allowed.

Directions: From I-81 take Exit 17 for Hwy. 58 Alt and follow this for 50 miles to Norton. Continue through Norton on Park Ave. for three miles, and it turns into Kent Junction Rd. The Appalachian Traditions Village is on the right.
