THE NEXT PHASE
The China Folk House Retreat will serve as an experiential, interactive museum showcasing the diverse folk cultures, vernacular architecture, agriculture, handicrafts, and folklife of northwest Yunnan. Our inaugural program in the summer of 2019 was the reassembly of the timber frame of the China Folk House at its new home, the Friends Wilderness Center in Jefferson County, West Virginia, by a team of local builders from the Harpers Ferry area, high school and college students participating in an experiential work-study program, and community volunteers. In the future, CFHR plans to host an ongoing series of cultural exchanges and experiential education workshops with craftsmen and artists from Yunnan.
