The Arts and Craft Center of Kentucky
Berea is considered the Crafts capital of Kentucky. It would appear that the economy over the past few years (2006-2008) has not been kind. Many shops are still open, but the town is vary quiet in the summer. Maybe, we were just there at the wrong time of the year. There are plenty of skilled craftsmen around, as we saw much of their work. We did not find the studio-shops that we had heard about. Still, if you like hand crafted items, this is the place to be.
WILDEFLOWER's new Berea Page
Burea is a mountain town. We snacked at this resterant hotel after climbing the pennacles close by. The pennacles take about four hours to climb. I'll put pictures of them in here later. We were visiting a friend of mine that was going to college at EKU, so we were only here for a couple of days. It is really beautiful. There is a college around here that only the mountain kids aree aloud to go to that college.

Hands Around Berea
Taking its cue from Lexington and other cities that have had local artists design their own version of city symbols, Berea has chosen to do "hands." They can be found all over town and each one has a little sign on it explaining who the artist was and what the title of the project is.
