All About the Wild Hog
The Wild Hog in the Woods, Inc., was founded in 1978 by local folk musicians and folk lovers. After a fundraising barn dance that summer, the Coffeehouse opened for the first time on Thursday, November 30 and Friday, December 1 (although the poster said November 31st). The organization is based on cooperative principals and is incorporated as a not for profit organization. The Hog is operated by its members, with everyone volunteering their time, skills and talents.
