Ralph Stanley Museum and Traditional Mountain Music Center

The Ralph Stanley Museum and Traditional Mountain Music Center features the life and music of the legendary music performer. Recognized as a pioneer in traditional Appalachian old-time music, Stanley has donated his extensive collection of memorabilia – ranging from vintage instruments to countless musical awards – to the museum. Located in an historic Victorian home the collection includes exhibits on Dr. Stanley, the region’s musical roots, and on popular successors like Ricky Skaggs and Patty Loveless. The facility is a resource center for students and music fans to learn more about traditional American and Appalachian music. The facility, housed in the four-story Chase House, includes a 2,200-square-foot museum on two levels of the facility, a welcome Center, a retail store, and office and storage.
