Scenic Byways Directory

The Ozarks Folk Center and Blanchard Springs Caverns are two major attractions which draw people into little Mountain View. The Folk Center is a mecca for country, blue grass, and old time music with three performing venues, the largest of which seats 1000.scenic byways tours The theatres and stages are set within the Ozarks Folk Village, a collection of gardens, cottages, and sheds highlighting traditional crafts such as candle-making, blacksmith, broom-making, wood working, basket weaving, pottery, and several more . . . including quilting. Each of the crafts areas are staffed by re-enactor/craftspersons at work, who while working also serve as educators/explainers for their particular craft and its history. In addition to the entertainment and tours of the village, the Folk Center also sponsors a number of hands-on crafts workshops throughout the season.

Blanchard Springs Caverns is a National Forest Park Service attraction in the Ozarks highlands north of Mountain View. The caverns offer three cave tours, including one that is accessible for wheelchairs and strollers and one that is undeveloped for veteran spelunkers. The visitor center offers books, gifts, an educational exhibit hall on the caves and a movie theatre. The springs area of the park offers picnic areas, swimming (& a bathhouse), hiking, fishing for trout and smallmouth bass, and a modern campground with electric hookups and showers.

Quilting Cottage

Quilting CottageSeveral classic quilt designs are on display plus some unusual antique quilts.

The Ozarks Folk Center offers a number of heritage crafts workshops, including quilting, from March to November.


Exhibits in the cottage explain that quilting may go back as far as 3400 B.C.; the latin root of the word means "stuffed sack." In America quilting became especially popular in the 19th century as "Quilting Bees" became a popular means of social exchange among women where they could accomplish something useful while exchanging ideas and news.

Blanchard Springs Caverns

Ozarks Folk Center Map
The caverns at Blanchard Springs and the Visitor Center provide an exceptional educational caving experience. See the cave website for some cave pictures and information on cave tours.

We also like the springs area of the park for its scenery, hiking, and nicely laid out camp ground.
