The Folk Art Center is a museum for Appalachian crafts and is a cooperative effort between the Southern Highland Craft Guild, the National Park Service, and the Appalachian Regional Commission. It houses as much 3,500 pieces original hand-made crafts. The museum was started by Frances Goodrich with a few local women which evolved to Allanstand Craft Shop.

The Center also features an exhibition of traditional and contemporary southern Appalachian crafts.
