Industrical Heritage & Technology Discovery Center
The development of an Industrial Heritage and Technology Discovery Center has been an important aspect of efforts to capitalize on the rich industrial heritage of the Alleghany Highlands and the unique opportunities it presents for cultural, educational and economic development. One of the initiatives of the Alleghany Highlands Vision 2025 focuses on museums and trails to showcase the heritage and natural beauty of the region. The Discovery Center will reflect on the past, engage in the present and prepare for the future. Not only will the Center provide historical displays and artifacts documenting the industrial heritage of the Alleghany Highlands but will also provide experiential opportunities for visitors to participate in an active discovery of the manufacturing and industrial processes in its communities.
