Cumberland Crafts is the newest shop of the Southern Highland Craft Guild. It is nestled in the Southern Appalachian mountains where Kentucky, Tennesse, and Virginia meet. Cumberland Gap National Historical Park introduces you to faces and places from the era of westward migration. Many of the park's interesting features, like Skylight Cave, are reached only by trail. The park maintains 70 miles of trails, ranging from .25 mile to 21 miles.
From the Visitor Center you can drive or hike to Pinnacle Overlook (elevation 2,440 feet) for a spectacular view of three states. You are invited to join the park's campfire programs, hikes, music programs, tours of the historic Appalachian community of Hensley Settlement, craft demonstrations and other activities planned throughout the year.
Cumberland Crafts at the Visitor Center features fine traditional and contemporary crafts all made by mountain artists. Cumberland also hosts special events and craft demonstrations throughout the year.
