“During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, mountain craftsmen formed the cornerstone of a revived interest in things handmade to create a movement known as the Craft Revival. Although craftsmen left few written records of their own, their story survives in samples of their work, accounts of their sales, and newspaper clippings celebrating their talent in collections throughout the Appalachian region. A research-based website interprets the Craft Revival and includes an archival repository of over 4,500 documents, photographs, and craft objects.”
