W. W. Craig Gallery

The W.W. Craig Gallery occupies the upper floor of the Dr. Walter Chestnut Library and is governed by the same library board.

John and Betty Lou Craig established the Gallery to honor John's father, Woodford, "Woody" Craig, founder of Craig Manufacturing and great benefactor to the community of Hartland. 

On going displays include the legislative desk of Premier Richard Hatfield and some of his awards, also pictures, tools and other personal belongings of Dr. Walter Chestnut. The gallery sponsors traditional English teas several times a year, as well as displays clocks, model railways, quilts, and provides many other ancillary activities.

The Gallery celebrates an annual festival every July called “Paint the Heartland”. Numerous and varied artists and artisans come together to create, display, demonstrate and sell their art. To participate in Paint the Heartland or to learn more about the Gallery, contact the Dr. Walter Chestnut Library at 375-4876.
