Pike Road Arts & Crafts Fair
The Marks House, Pike Road, Alabama, Circa 1825
The Marks House was built between 1825 and 1830 by William Matthews Marks, the son of Nicholas Meriwether Marks. Dr. H. B. “Woody” Bartlett bought it in 1957. A “Thanksgiving Visitor” starring Truman Capote was filmed here in 1957. Dr. Bartlett has consented for the Community to use it as a community center without charge resulting in this landmark is being preserved.
Thank you for your support of the Pike Road Arts and Crafts Fair. This event has been a part of the fabric of Pike Road for many years.
While we honor the Fair’s vibrant 50-year legacy, it has become difficult to obtain the many volunteers needed to coordinate this huge endeavor. For this reason, it is with heavy hearts that we announce that the Pike Road Arts and Crafts Fair cannot be continued.
Please accept our best wishes and our gratitude for your support and patronage. It was only with the full support of the community, the vendors and our dedicated volunteers that we were so successful during the last fifty years.
