Crab Orchard Corn Maze and Pisgah Pumpkin Patch is an
outdoor classroom extension of Crab Orchard Museum
that emphasizes the importance of nature and history
while also enjoying the beauty of our landscape.

Each year's maze design focuses on a different topic relating to the history and culture of Southwest Virginia and Appalachia. 
Previous years' themes include Native American life, agriculture, the Burke's Garden Varmint, and mountain music.  
The 2018 maze design features Appalachian food.
