History Alive Tours

Since 1778, the town of Abingdon has stood as a crossroads to the Wilderness Trail for those brave souls looking to build a new life - willing to work and fight for our freedom. 

History Alive Tours are conducted by living history guides who tell the stories from the point of view of those who walked these trails. Come tour historic Abingdon and beautiful southwestern Virginia with Lord Dunmore, the last colonial governor of Virginia, or Rev. Charles Cummings, The Fightin’ Parson, or march the Overmountain Victory Trail with George Thomasson, drummer with militia at the Battle of Kings Mountain, or enjoy the area taverns and taprooms with Rufus Soule, tavern owner.
