Visitors to the site will find a welcome center with a gift shop and museum; a Poetry Trail that highlights Reece poems representing the four seasons; Mulberry Hall, the poet's writing studio; five barn buildings housing 13 exhibits, which feature home and farm artifacts, implements, and enterprises that portray life in Appalachia during the first half of the 20th century; and the Reece Gallery & Theater, which displays photographs, books, copies of Reece's writings, and other Reece material, along with the award-winning video, "Voices … Finding Byron Herbert Reece."

Download the new app from iTunes beginning in late April. Brochures guide visitors through the exhibits. Docent-led tours are available by reservation to large groups, for a fee. Various events are held throughout the year.
