The Raintree Arts Council is a non-profit, multi-disciplinary arts agency serving Pike and Lincoln Counties in
Northeast Missouri. Raintree was founded in 1979 when the Raintree Art Guild and Raintree Theatre
Guild merged. Raintree offers programming in theatre, music, visual arts, and literature.
Raintree also promotes several educational programs throughout the year in local schools.
Raintree receives partial financial assistance from the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
"To provide opportunities for cultural enrichment through participation, education, and outreach
to Pike and Lincoln Counties."
Our home is the historic Apple Shed in Clarksville, Missouri. The Apple Shed was donated by Mallin Apple
orchards in 1979 for Raintree to convert into a cultural arts center for the community. The Apple Shed has
seen musical and theatrical productions, concerts, festivals, and many other activities over the past 32 years.
The Apple Shed is also starting to become popular as a wedding reception site.
