Founded in Montville in 1950, the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts has become world-renowned as a center for education for artists and artisans and as a inspirational community called "the home of the soul of American craft" by author Paulus Berensohn. After highway construction prompted a move in 1961, the founders of Haystack relocated the school to a beautiful 40-acre seaside site on Deer Isle and worked with architect Edward Larrabee Barnes to create a campus of interconnected buildings that is considered a work of art, one of only 41 recipients of the Twenty-Five Year Award from the American Institute of Architects and a 2006 addition to the National Register of Historic Places.
