Our Mission

Blue Ridge Heritage, Incorporated is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to promoting education and economic development through place-based programs related to the natural and cultural heritage of the Blue Ridge in Southwestern Virginia’s Bi-County area of Floyd and Patrick Counties.


The center's educational outreach will be the Twentieth Century.  This focus will allow an interpretive program that will span the log cabin stereotype of the Nineteenth Century to the globalization begun in the Twentieth Century.
