A special message to our guests and patrons . . .

Since 1970 Mel Horst and the Horst family owned and operated the Folk Craft Center Museum, Shoppes, and Bed & Breakfast. In March of 2008 the operation and management was entrusted to new proprietors. The Museum complex has been purchased by a local, non-profit ministry. The Horst family wishes to thank our many guests, friends, and visitors who have supported Mel's development of the Folk Craft Center throughout its 38 years of operation.

Sadly, Mel passed away, unexpectedly, in March of 2008. The Horst family will continue to promote his knowledge and resources, pertaining to the Amish & Mennonite culture, through this web site.
