special message to our guests and
patrons . . .
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.
