Haystack School

Deer Isle is home to the Haystack School of Arts and Crafts - one of the most prestigious art and craft schools in the US. The concentration of so many students and artists has had a wonderful impact on the island (well, from my perspective anyway - the local folk may have a different opinion!) The school is perched on Haystack Mountain at the end of a winding dirt road. The architect tried to blend the buildings into the natural setting with wonderful effect!
