The center was established in 1981 as the Mennonite Information Center. In 1989 the current facility was built on County Road 77 to adequately present the Behalt Cyclorama and provide the adequate support space for the Bookstore and Gift Shop. In 2002, the center officially adopted the present name to more accurately reflect our community and mission. Now in operation for more than 28 years, the Amish & Mennonite Heritage Center annually receives visitors from all 50 states, most Canadian provinces, and from about 60 countries – from Australia to Zimbabwe.

Before stopping at a touristy Amish spot, stop here to understand the history and culture of an often misunderstood people. The mural is beautifully and descriptively painted and the narrator brings it all to life. the narrator shares religious, historical, cultural, and personal information that allows an outsider a window into Amish life. This is an absolute must see!!!
Great place to stop amazing history to be learned. Worth every cent plus more. Be sure to go and experience the painting and stories.
It is good adventure to dicover the history of this special people who have their own belief in christianity and to know the way of life they live and how they behave nowadays.
We enjoy the Christian simplicity and the Thankfulness of our Lord and families! The strong will survive!
