Olive's Porch

Olive's Porch, a new Folk School experience in downtown Murphy, is opening this winter!

Named after the school's co-founder Olive Dame Campbell, the location at 27 Peachtree Street features classroom space, a retail shop showcasing the work of Appalachian artists, and a studio space dedicated to the Artist in Residence Program.

Inspired by feedback from community listening sessions, Olive's Porch offers a way to celebrate Appalachian heritage all year long.

Olive's Porch will host hands-on workshops for youth and adults on evenings and weekends, emphasizing traditional Appalachian craft, music, and dance. A variety of discussions, demonstrations, artist markets, seasonal programs for school-age youth, and other community-focused events will be presented year-round.

In addition to the offerings downtown, Olive's Porch will work alongside other non-profits, organizations, and area schools to bring new learning opportunities directly to our friends in Cherokee County and the surrounding area.
