Haller-Gibboney Rock House Museum
Wytheville, VA

The home of Wytheville's first resident physician, the Haller-Gibboney Rock House has played a significant role in Wytheville's history since its construction in 1823. Dr. John Haller served his community as a country doctor, county coroner, and delegate to the Virginia Legislature.

During the 140 years that the Hallers and their descendants, the Gibboneys and Campbells lived in the home, they responded to the needs of their community by using their home as an infirmary and school during the Civil War years and as a boarding house when Wytheville became a popular summer resort. As a Registered Historical Landmark, the home now serves as a museum containing over 1400 original artifacts and period furnishings. The purpose of the Rock House Museum is to preserve its collections, structure, and grounds in a manner that promotes understanding and appreciation of family life in Wytheville within the context of the events of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
