Try your hand at axe or knife throwing and brave the Bull Riding Challenge at Tomahawk Hill. Find treasure at Prospector Hill Gem Mining. Discover Appalachian history at the Dougherty House and Historic Farmyard. Explore the Native American Artifacts Museum, home to the largest private collection of Native American artifacts in the world. Wade in the waters of the New River, which runs alongside Mystery Hill.
