The original one room general store was built in 1908. The building later served as an Episcopal Church meeting area, the Wintergreen Country Store, and Spruce Creek Art Gallery. The Rockfish Valley Foundation acquired the building in May of 2011; it now houses exhibits from the Virginia Museum of Natural History and serves as a headquarters for the foundation. This historic place still serves the community with programs and events every year.
Interpretive information at Spruce Creek Park focuses on water, land/rocks, plants, animals, and local history.
