DescriptionThe Muster Grounds and the W. Blair Keller, Jr. Interpretive Center are located at 702 Colonial Road in Abingdon, Virginia. This site is the northernmost trailhead of the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail.
This beautiful tract of land along Wolf Creek has remained undeveloped since the time of the 1780 muster. It is part of the larger field reaching upstream upon which the gathering Washington County Militia would have encamped prior to their departure on September 24, 1780.
Today, the site is the scene of the annual Call to Arms, Overmountain Victory Celebration each September.
