Built to create a learning environment in a natural setting that will encourage the preservation of the old ways and expand the mind and soul through participation in the arts. The beautiful Allegheny Mountains provide the perfect setting for the Hemlock Springs complex- the mountains create a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere far from the bustling urban crowds, an atmosphere that brings you back in touch with nature . . . and yourself. While in this enchanting setting surrounded by immaculately-kept gardens, you will be able to learn the old-fashioned crafts and skills associated with the northern Appalachian region. The historic drafts of this culture are in great demand and the skills used in creating these masterpieces are slowly being lost in the pace of our modern world.
