“share the heritage of the Amish!”
Escape to Amish Acres in Nappanee, Indiana and share the heritage of these intriguing people in quiet celebration of America’s tolerance for diversity. Time stopped over a century ago and preserves, in the Amish, a way of life adhering to nearly forgotten patterns of living in today’s fast paced world. The legacy of the three generations of the family who lived here is seen and felt through a nostalgic visit to the farm and homestead. Discover the tools and trappings of yesteryear and relax as youview the documentary films, walk the oaken floorboards of the 138 year old Amish homestead, and take a leisurely farm wagon ride around the 80 acre farm. You’ll learn the whys and ways of the Amish as your guide winds you through the twelve room white frame house, the Grossdaadi Haus, the Schwietzer bank barn and inviting outbuildings. You’ll experience the sights and sounds of a working farm, alive with barnyard hens, livestock, gardens and apple orchard.
The staff are very friendly and knowledgable. My personal favorites so far are the old school house, the house tour and the buggy ride. I got to sit up front!
Can be done in an afternoon but don't get there too late.
The round barn has interesting plays. This is done by paid actors that are hired for the summer.
Neat place. Interesting history. I live in Nappanee, where true Amish people live. Please be considerate and curtious to them. They are very nice so please be respective.
