Berea is a quirky town filled with artists and educators whose values tend to be progressive. But there also is a conservative contingent that can keep the politics lively here.

Berea College offers tuition-free education with a simple ethic in mind – providing for folks of modest means who are willing to work, regardless of race or gender.
