Folk Arts & Crafts in Mountain View, Arkansas

Children watch a wood carver in Mountain View, Arkansas.

The Ozark Folk Center of Mountain View, Arkansas is America’s only facility that works to share the heritage and way of life of the Ozark Mountain people. It’s lively, it’s entertaining, and it makes learning about Ozark history and heritage loads of fun. It’s an adventure in yesterday’s Ozark way of life that you can see, touch and enjoy today.”

We offer workshops in pioneer crafts, herb gardening and traditional American folk music, as well as special folk arts & crafts programs for children and seniors. Make plans now to attend our Ozark Folk Schools.

The Skillet Restaurant is one of the finest country cooking restaurants in the Ozark Mountains, featuring recipes made with the organic herbs grown in our Gardens.

Our Mission at the Ozark Folk Center is dedicated to providing living history and exists to preserve, document, display and interpret the cultural and social history of the Ozark region, an area that takes up part of five states: Arkansas, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.
