The Armory & Artifacts Shop ca. 1790 at Michie Tavern in Charlottesville, Virginia, retails antique weapons: long rifles, pistols, swords, artifacts, relics and accessories. The shop specializes in antique firearms, predominantly from the mid 19th-century, with some 18th-century flintlocks also available. Our military antiques date from the American Revolution to the American Civil War with a strong emphasis on the later. We carry a full line of items related to artillery, books, currency, patriotic covers, swords, firearms, documents, newspaper prints, musical instruments, military accouterments, 19th-century civilian and military photographs and a large supply of excavated battlefield relics. Every item for sale is authentic, a history accompanies each weapon and the staff is very knowledgeable. Soon this page will be enhanced check out a few items from our on-line shopping site. This is an ever evolving, rotating stock shop and what’s here today, may be gone tomorrow.

History on the building:

Virginia’s virgin forest provided materials for the first settlers’ most basic shelter.  Centuries ago, first growth trees were felled and the wood hewn to form this single-room log cabin in Piney River, Virginia, 45 minutes south of here.  Michie Tavern was able to preserve and reconstruct this wonderful structure; the work was completed in July 2009.

Seasonal Operation: 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
