The fellow was very helpful in telling us about things to do and see in the area. There are maps and brochures. There are some artifacts, too, which make it interesting to browse around a bit.

This was our number one stop in Berea so we could get our bearings and determine exactly where to go and what to see.

In addition to the wonderful center this is located by a variety of arts, crafts and antique stores. A gift shop opposite the station even gave us a 10% discount
