Arts and crafts have made West Virginia a major tourist destination.
The industry took center stage when Tamarack opened along the West Virginia Turnpike in 1996.
Tamarack was the first of its kind with exhibits featuring the state's resources, as well as place for residents to make their crafts.
Inside, you'll also find more than ten thousand West Virginia handmade products, along with workshops, cultural exhibits and a theater.
"I like to visit the people. Meet the people. We do shows in Missouri, Indiana, and Ohio just so we can meet people and talk to them," said a worker at the facility. "Here I get to talk to hundreds of people a day and I get to see where they're from and get there experience of there trip."
It took 16.2 million dollars to build Tamarack.
Tamarack was named after the Tamarack tree, known for its strength, versatility and beauty.
