The Southwest Virginia Walk of Fame was founded in 2008 to provide a showcase for the heritage of Southwest Virginia and to advance the knowledge, awareness and appreciation of great Southwest Virginians, past and present, who have made significant contributions to the our state, nation, and world.  

The walk will be located on the grounds of the Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park. Each honoree will be designated with a tile inscribed with their name and area of discipline (architecture, literature, medicine, politics, sports etc.) for which their contribution is known.  An accompanying brochure contains a brief biographical summary.    

The tiles are permanently set into the sidewalks of the Southwest Virginia Museum grounds. The Walk of Fame is free of charge, open during the operation hours of the museum, and accessible for all to enjoy.  The walk will serve, as an educational tool for area citizens and school children, as well as highlight to tourists, the region's contributions to the history of our state and nation.
