Experience Lancaster’s Living Heritage at America’s first Amish attraction! Come explore where today touches history at the Amish Farm and House and learn about the unique culture of Lancaster County’s Old Order Amish. Our historic 1805 farmhouse, which was last occupied by real Amish family, is furnished like a modern Amish home. Your highly-knowledgeable guide will explain the history, customs, clothing, and culture as you visit the various rooms of the home. You will learn the “whys” behind many of the traditions on this tour.
Afterwards, wander the 15-acre farm that was part of a 1715 land grant from Pennsylvania’s founder, William Penn. Follow the walking paths as you see a wide variety of farm animals—sheep, cows, chickens, goats, donkeys, alpacas, and more! Step into one of our historic barns and check out the farm displays. Visit the blacksmith shop or the milk house. Children of all ages will love “Scooter Run”—a place where they can try their hand (or foot!) at a real Amish scooter. Talk with teacher Katie at the school and then walk down to the real 1855 covered bridge. There’s something for everyone on this fun-filled farm!
WILLOW LANE ONE-ROOM SCHOOL:
Built in 2006 for us by a local Amish crew, this is Lancaster County’s only Amish schoolhouse designed, built, and furnished with you—our guest—in mind. Step inside and you’ll be in “Katie’s Klassroom.” Teacher Katie is our resident Amish teacher. A former Amish teacher herself, she’ll be happy to sit and chat for a while and answer your questions.
The Amish Farm and House is proud to be the permanent location for Chris Lubkemann, a nationally-known woodcarver who specializes in roosters and other miniature carvings.
