The Artisan Center Along the Crooked Road promotes and highlights many of the things that make this region special by featuring the work of local and area artists. Pieces include such works as pottery, glass, leather, photography, jewelry, gourds & books by local authors. While shopping at the center, one can also find a variety of antiques, home decor, souvenirs, delicious food items and gifts. The Artisan Center is located in the center of Downtown Rocky Mount, Virginia and showcased on the ‘Round the Mountain Artisan Trail, Southwest Virginia’s Artisan Network and is also located on The Crooked Road, Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail. We strive to provide an enjoyable atmosphere, friendly service and some of the most unique gifts and books that a person would be happy to take home as a reminder of their visit to Franklin County.
