If you are into arts and crafts, this is a must-see. Currently featuring a quilt exhibit, which is amazing. Artists rotate through the center, demonstrating their craft.

The Folk Art Center is a wonderful combination of demonstrations by skilled craftsmen (in wood turning, glass blowing, etc), museum quality displays and beautiful hand made products for sale. Even, if you aren't normally an enthusiast of folk art you will likely enjoy this stop.

We bring all our visitors here to look at the small museum and the shop that has all the fantastic handicrafts from this area. Everyone likes it.

Wonderful handmade items made locally. A great place to find unusual, one of a kind gifts or something special for yourself.

Incredible quilts on display. Thought there would be more rustic handiwork.
