Wytheville

There’s Only One

Downtown Downtown Wytheville is open for business with an extensive revitalization underway that is breathing new life in Main Street and beyond. It is also a “work in progress.” Please be aware that in 2016 and 2017, you may see sections “under construction” as our community improves the functionality and accessibility of this historic downtown area. A great way to begin your Downtown Wytheville experience is by exploring the history of Wytheville through a leisurely stroll. Pick up a copy of Wytheville’s Historic Walking Tour at the Visitor Center. This tour highlights the many historical events that happened in this area including the Battle of Wytheville during the Civil War and the birth of a very significant First Lady. Some of the oldest structures in Wytheville can be found in the Downtown area and many have an interesting story still in the making.

The tour can begin at Wytheville’s Heritage Preservation Center with an orientation to the Haller-Gibboney Rock House and Thomas J. Boyd Museums. Medicine, war battles, and a “Summer Without Children” are just a few of the topics covered in the exhibits. One of the most eye-catching sights on Main Street, the “Big Pencil” has been a landmark for over 50 years at the Wytheville Office Supply. Constructed in the 1950s, it is made of metal and is approximately 30 feet long.

Yesterday’s Memories Fuel Today’s Future Wytheville’s Downtown Revitalization!

Another unique business with local flavor is Skeeters. Visitors come from far and wide to take a bite out of a “Skeeter dog” and the sign on the side of the building indicates that over nine million have been sold. Within the same building is the Edith Bolling Wilson Birthplace Museum. The only First Lady museum in Virginia, this facility honors the life and legacy of a very distinguished daughter of Wytheville. While in later life she would be a United States First Lady, the Museum shows how her childhood in Wytheville helped shape her future.

Southwest Virginia’s newest boutique hotel, the Bolling Wilson Hotel, honors this famous Virginian. The property includes 30 guest rooms, a restaurant, ballroom, outdoor dining and rooftop bar.

A couple of blocks from the downtown area, you will find two beautiful local parks. Elizabeth Brown Memorial Park offers shelters and picnic tables and is the home of the annual Chautauqua Festival each June. Withers Park was once a baseball field and now includes a walking track, playground and the Wall of Honor which includes the War Memorial, Civic, and Sports Monuments. Just a few blocks from this area are seven structures believed to be the oldest original buildings in Wytheville. Although changes have been made, all or part of the houses existed prior to or during the 1830’s. Several served as

History

Founded in 1790, Wythe County was named for the first signer of the Declaration of Independence for Virginia – George Wythe. Early settlement can be credited to the access to water (the New River and many creeks) and the abundance of natural resources, including lead. One hundred acres was selected as the county seat in 1792 and Evansham, now Wytheville, became the central town. The history of the area patterns the history of the nation with many interesting events, legends, and characters along the way. Begin with a visit to the Wytheville Heritage Preservation Center at 115 West Spiller Street to the Haller-Gibboney Rock House and Thomas J. Boyd Museums. Medicine, the Civil War, and polio’s unique impact are a few of the topics covered. The Great Lakes to Florida Highway Museum depicts the mid-20th century era with its unique look at transportation. The self-guided Wytheville’s Historic Walking Tour showcases local history from pre-Civil War times until today.

genealogy History

Did you know?

Stephen F. Austin, later known as the “Father of Texas,” was born in Wythe County, in a small area that now bears the family name - Austinville.

The region’s only African American Heritage Museum is located within the Wytheville Training School Cultural Center and has an emphasis on education through photographs and exhibits. Five locations on the Virginia Civil War Trails mark the route of Toland’s Raid and offer a beautiful scenic drive between locations. Also located in the historic district, the Edith Bolling Wilson Birthplace Museum tells the influential and controversial story of this First Lady’s life from her childhood in Wytheville to her years in the nation’s capital. Overlooking the New River, the Historic Shot Tower was built more than 150 years ago to make ammunition for the firearms of the early settlers. Lead from the nearby Austinville Mines was melted in a kettle atop the 75-foot tower and poured through a sieve, falling through the tower and an additional 75-foot shaft beneath the tower into a kettle of water. A nearby monument honors native son Stephen F. Austin who would later be known as the “Father of Texas”. When’s the last time you visited a southern mansion? Steeped in history and legend, Major Graham Mansion and The Mansion at Fort Chiswell are located minutes from I-77 and 81 and are open seasonally for special events and tours. 22

Claw of the Dragon

Wytheville

There’s Only One features loops totaling over 350 miles as it ventures over to the community of Marion to the west and Galax to the east. The drive meanders through parts of seven Virginia counties but is easily accessible from Interstates 77 or 81 as a starting point. Loops include leisurely rides through some of the most beautiful land in Virginia as well as the challenge of the “Back of the Dragon,”

It would be a challenge for motorcycle riders to find a more beautiful driving trail than the scenic back roads of Southwest Virginia. Looping through the Blue Ridge Mountain range, The Claw of the Dragon is becoming one of the most popular destinations in the South for motorcycle enthusiasts.   With the charming town of Wytheville as the center or hub, the trail

the heart-stopping two-lane ribbon that follows Virginia Route 16 over three mountains between Tazewell and Marion. Along the way, riders will find a variety of authentic attractions, breath-taking scenery, delicious dining establishments and delightful accommodations to make their adventure in Southwest Virginia complete. For more information, The Claw of the Dragon visit The Claw of the Dragon Horn of the Cow www.ClawoftheDragon.com.
