See Roberta Rae Photography’s wedding album from Jane and Timm’s enchanting September 2013 Folklore Village wedding:

“We were fortunate to have such a unique place as Folklore Village to host our monthly Memory Café.  Participants loved meeting in beautiful and inviting Farwell Hall.  Staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and meet the needs of our participants.  It was a joy being a part of this community and supporting a treasured community legacy.”
