In Goshen, Creativity is Contagious

Wooden Music • Good of Goshen

Jim Shenk has owned Wooden Music, a handmade guitar shop in Goshen, for 12 years. Located snugly behind the Goshen Farmer’s Market in downtown Goshen, Wooden Music is where Shenk makes guitars and mandolins, and fixes other stringed instruments — all meticulously by hand.

When he talks about what it’s like to be a craftsman and business owner in Goshen, he says, “the whole atmosphere of this place is creative, so it’s contagious.”

Update: Wooden Music is no longer in operation. However, the passionate and dedicated individual involved continues to positively impact the community.

Wooden Music is located at 212 W. Washington St.
