The salt of Saltville has been important to mastodons, Native Americans, and the military from the War of 1812 to today. Its well field wetlands have plants and birds which flourish in saline waters.

Better understand the history of Saltville by touring several historic buildings. Starting at the Museum of Middle Appalachians, the group will go in a caravan to Madame Russell Methodist Church, St. Paul Episcopal, Elizabeth Cemetery, William King-Stuart Cabin, W. A. Stuart House, the Salt Park, and the paleontological dig.
