Keith House Community Room: the Heart of the Folk School

Keith House Community Room: the Heart of the Folk School

The Community Room at Dedication Day, September 3, 1927.

Red sourwood trees framing the native stone fireplace and handmade, split-bottomed chairs witnessed Dedication Day for our Community Room of Keith House in 1927. This simple yet beautiful room became the cornerstone of the Folk School, and still proves to be the beating heart of our community. Dances, morningsong, concerts, readings, auctions, parties… something is going on in this room every day, and has been for 85 years.

Do you have a special memory or story about the Community Room?

    Can’t wait to make another memory in the Community Room this Saturday night for Bob’s induction and eclipse dance.

    Is it possible to buy prints of this photograph? I would love to have one.

      We are not set up to offer prints for sale at this point, but hopefully we will be able to in the future.
