Mission of the Historical Society

Our Mission is to preserve our History for future Generations.
We want to encourage people to explore their Roots and realize how much Fun it is to trace your Family back 3or 4 Generations.
 We are looking for Photos and Family history written by family members to display in the Museum.  We have some started and would love to keep adding to this.  Check out the pictures in our photo gallery.
           Museum open every saturday 10:00 am until 4:00pm thru the summer months.

Come take a trip to the country

Take a trip back in time with a visit through the Older Amish Community. They live without all the modern conveniences such as electricity, telephones, and cars. Their lifestyle separates them from the modern world. They emphasize on humility, faith, and family, honest and hard work. They recognized by their plain dress and travel by horse and buggy.
Amish produce a variety of good that include Quilts, Rugs, Bake Goods, Candy, Toys, Wood and iron crafts, Furniture, Eggs, Fruits and vegetables. They sell their products from their homes, they have signs in their yards letting people know what they are selling. Amish have a unique way of life which we respect, while on the tour we request that you are thoughtful and courteous of their way.
Come join a tour where one of our Guides will join you in your vehicle and give you 2 hour tour around the back roads and show you the great shops around the area. We will make several stops along the way where you can shop and we will share stories of the fascinating history of the area.
Tours are by reservation only
