The Museums Of Wytheville
The home of Wytheville'’s first resident physician, the Haller-Gibboney Rock House has played a significant role in Wytheville'’s history since its construction in 1823. Dr. John Haller served his community as a country doctor, county coroner and delegate to the Virginia Legislature.
The Thomas J. Boyd Museum opened in December 1983. Located beside the Haller-Gibboney Rock House, the Boyd Museum is named for Thomas Jefferson Boyd who is known as the “Father of Wytheville” (he was an attorney, Town mayor, surveyor, hotel builder and Virginia Legislator).
The Great Lakes to Florida Highway Museum opened August 20, 2011.The third museum owned and operated by the Town of Wytheville offers visitors a chance to return to the days when the Great Lakes to Florida Highway (Route 21) was the main route from Ohio to Florida. Original artifacts, newspaper clippings and exhibits tell the story of the development of Route 21 and Interstate 77.
