Ozark Folkways


Clara Muxen began Ozark Folkways as the "Craft School of the Ozarks" in the 1940's. We know this from her handwritten notes. To support her endeavors, she started a gift shop in an old service station. She maintained a used clothing distribution program for needy hill people of the Ozarks. Miss Muxen hoped to train these hill folk, locked in poverty, to value their traditional arts, crafts, and music. We have her hand- drawn plans for our building with individual rooms labeled according to what she envisioned as their purpose. Unfortunately she died before the school was operational. Today we survive on donations, classes held at the school and special events designed to promote, preserve, and keep alive our unique heritage of arts, crafts and music of the Ozarks region. Someday, with your help, we will finish this beautiful building . . . until then "The Dream Lives On!"
