Nestled on the outskirts of Madison County and just 40 miles south of Lexington, Berea is a city of diverse culture, art and open-minded expression. This culture is reflected within Berea real estate as well. Known as the “Folk Arts and Crafts Capital of Kentucky”, Berea offers over 40 arts and crafts shops featuring everything from handmade dulcimers and homemade chocolate to jewelry stores, art galleries, quilt-makers, and even glassblowing studios. At the heart of Berea and its crafts tradition is Berea College, ranked as one of the nation’s leading liberal arts colleges. Students do not pay tuition, but work ten to fifteen hours per week in one of the college’s industries. As part of the Berea College Crafts program, students create fine furniture, woven items, ceramics, brooms, and wrought iron pieces. They are sold at the Berea College Log House Craft Gallery and play a large role in the preservation of mountain crafts, not to mention they also make wonderful decor in the many Berea homes for sale.View More Community Information View Blog Articles About This Community
