Loretta has also made her mark on this quaint historic town.
Established in 1867 and purchased and updated by Lynn in the 1960’s the 19th century grist mill is still on the property. It now houses gift shops, guided tours of Loretta’s replicated childhood home-place, simulated coal mine, and Plantation home.
There are several museums on the property, including artifacts of the historic grist mill. There is also Loretta’s collection of Native American artifacts and the famous 18,000 sq. ft. Coal Miner’s Daughter museum. The museum spans Loretta’s career with all exhibit notes handwritten by Loretta telling her story in her own words.
The property runs adjacent to pristine spring-fed Hurricane Creek and offers picturesque hillside views, water activities like kayaking, tubing and fishing.
The campground has amenities such as a swimming pool and Guided Horseback tours. There are hiking/bicycling trails that crisscross the property which sits on over 3000 acres of beautiful rural countryside. On event weekends, we also host special events like concerts, dirt bike rides, horseback rides, weddings, and gatherings of all kinds including Friday/Saturday “Campfire shows” offering family fun and community. The facility truly offers something for everyone.
