Exhibit at Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame

Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame   The Wilkes Heritage Museum, located in the restored historic Wilkes County Courthouse, opened in November of 2005 and celebrates the unique heritage of Wilkes County.  Through a collection of artifacts and images, stories of all facets of life in Wilkes County are told. Self-guided tours feature exhibits that include early settlement, medicine, military history, moonshine, and early stock-car racing.
   The Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame is also located at the museum and showcases the rich musical heritage of the greater Blue Ridge Mountains area from northern Georgia to northern Virginia. The Hall of Fame educates, defines and interprets the history of music in the Blue Ridge area and musicians in all genres from the region with exhibits and an annual celebration of inductees.
