Our family recently spent a wonderful week at Claytor Lake State Park. Given this is the "thunderstorm-in-the-afternoon" time of the year, we had a line-up of "other" things to do that were off-water.
One of the gems we discovered was the nearby Claytor Lake State Park and worth the visit!
Fodor's review of Central and Western Virginia Sights says about the Wilderness Road Regional Museum:
"What is now the Wilderness Road Regional Museum was once lodging for settlers making their way west on a Native American route that went from Pennsylvania through the Cumberland Gap. The man who founded the town of Newbern built this house in the same year, and the structure has since served as a private home, a tavern, a post office, and a store. Today the house contains antique dolls, swords and rifles, an old loom, and other artifacts of everyday life. A self-tour map of Newbern, the only Virginia town entirely within a National Register of Historic Places district, is available at the museum."
