Initially, woodcarvers and woodcrafters created items to fulfill the basic needs of the community or family but individuals with artistic talents quickly added decorations and designs to them.

On display are a pair of hand carved wooden shoes made and used by early settlers to the Great Black Swamp. People used wooden shoes in wet, muddy, and mucky areas, like barns and farmyards, where leather was not practical.

Today, artisans and artists create wood carved and wood crafted items for artistic or decorative purposes like the pieces on display throughout this building.
