"Craft Revival: Shaping Western North Carolina Past and Present"

The Museum of the Cherokee Indian is a Heritage Partner with the Craft Revival Project, a cooperative research effort under the auspices of Hunter Library at Western Carolina University and funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Craft Revival was a great resurgence in crafts production during the late 19th and early 20th centuries that took place in the Appalachian Mountains, much of it in Western North Carolina.  In an effort to document and tell the story of the Craft Revival, the Craft Revival Project has collected, digitized, and organized images of historical documents and craft objects for use on its website and online database.  To study the photos, go to the following link:
