    We were driving from Kentucky to Washington D.C. and kept seeing all these signs on the road saying "Tamarack - xx miles ahead". All those signs got the best of our curiosity and we took the Tamarack exit to see what exactly it was. I thought it was a Native American village...but it is really a huge crafts place for local West Virginia artists. There were many beautiful candles, artwork, quilts, woodwork, and things made from coal. I bought a beautiful piece of jewelry made from coal and also a ceramic cat.

    Tamarack is an amazing handcraft mall in a dramatic circular building in a park-like setting, just off the Interstate Highway 77. It contains America's first and largest collection of juried handcrafts. Here you may observe artists at work in five studios and browse dozens of fine craft shops. Also you will find a great selection of wines from West Virginia vineyards, and other local food specialities, as well as books about West Virginia.

    There is an art gallery which displays paintings, photography, sculpture and prints. Hungry? the foodcourt, operateed by The Greenbrier, one of America's finest hotels, offers taste-tempting meals and refreshments. There is also a theater which is open for live performances, films and theatrical events. You might be lucky to be there for food tastings, artisan demonstrations, or to hear strolling musicians which appear periodically.

    Tamarack is called "The Best of West Virginia.," and that is no exaggeration. If you are ever anywhere near Beckley you MUST stop and spend some time at Tamarack.

    Open Daily:
    January - March: 8:00 a.m. - 7 :00 p.m.
    April - December: 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.

    What to buy: Karen and I bought a couple of hand woven rugs and some delicious homemade raspberry jam, as well as a little wine for gifts.
