We stopped here to get information about this lovely old town. The lady in the visitor's center gave us information about local places of interest and maps. If you are visiting Berea for the first time, stop here and they will help with your visit.

The wife enjoys crafts and I enjoy old depots...so this was worth a stop for us. You kind of have to go here if you're in Berea, it's the town's thing.
