Garden & Gun & Dog

If you love foxhunting, horses, fly fishing, books, or art, you probably know who we are. If you love living in the South, country sports and speaking with a refined (or sometimes twangy) accent, you know Garden & Gun  magazine. Thanks to some mutual friends, we at NSLM have been able to share more about ourselves and our community with the kind folks at G&G.

This past summer we were featured in a weekend getaway article about our hometown, Middleburg, VA. Not only does our little town offer hunting, fine dining, and shopping, you can also see some of the best sporting artwork right here in our Museum (and read about its history in our Library!). Our most recent exhibition, Side-by-Side with Gun & Dog was also highlighted this fall. Read the Garden & Gun feature below, or read more about the exhibition on our website.

This December, the National Sporting Library & Museum will make its first ever appearance at G&G‘s Made in the South Jubilee in Charleston in just a few weeks! If you are in the area, come see us every day that weekend. We will have giveaways, items from our collection, and information on how you can be part of sporting history. If you can’t make it to Charleston, stop by the Library & Museum and pick up a copy of Side-by-Side with Gun & Dog‘s exhibition catalog. It’s a wishlist must for wing shooters and dog lovers alike!

Or meet us in Charleston!
