This popular Wytheville dinner show draws crowds from all over -- and it’s coming back
Next month, it will be time to toe-tap to Bluegrass gospel classics and re-engage with the Sanders family once again. The show is one that the Wohlfahrt Haus has done before, but it is coming back due to popular demand and positive feedback from the public. The location of the Wohlfahrt Haus itself makes it easy to attract tourists from North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia. “We are right where interstates 77 and 81 cross, and they literally cross right in front of the theater,” Terry said. “We pull in people from all four directions.”For more information on Wytheville and how to get there, click or tap here.

The history of the hotel began when Thomas Jefferson built a two-room log cabin after purchasing 157 acres of land and the Natural Bridge from King George III of England in 1774. Instead of lamenting the loss of a place with amazing memories, the hotel resurrected a new history to weave into the old one.
