Amish Acres Historic Farm and Heritage Resort

1600 West Market Street

Amish Acres Historic Farm & Heritage Resort in Nappanee, Indiana celebrates historic preservation through education, enlightenment and entertainment. To make your visit enjoyable use this index of attractions as your guide. Whether you come for the day, stay for a play, spend the night, Amish Acres and Northern Indiana Amish Country are at your finger tips.

The farmstead is listed in The National Register of Historic Places. It was homesteaded by the first Amish settlers to Indiana. Barbara Stahly brought her sons to Elkhart County in 1839. By 1873 Barbara’s son Christian had purchased land for his son Moses to begin clearing the land and farming the soil.

Since its split from the Swiss Brethren in 1693 the Amish have been practicing conservation as an integral part of their rural lifestyle. Conservation of resources simply common sense. In today’s modern world it seems necessary to label conservation as green and hold seminars and summits to discuss it. Such events are seldom attended by Amish farmers.

A wonderful place to visit for Amish handcrafted items and many many many antiques. A much slower simpler way of life out there. They have a Round Barn in which they hold plays. You can get a dinner theater package for a fairly reasonable price. They have Copacabana coming up soon which the wife and I would like to go back and see. It's a retelling of the story acted out in the same song by Barry Manilow. I believe after that they're doing a play on Happy Days with Fonzie and the Gang.

They provided the meal 4 our gathering of 80. Very good ham, stuffed baked potato, roll, steamed baby carrots and pie. The store and restaurant are on the ground level of a very large renovated Barn and the meeting area is the upper level. All went very smoothly.

We found this restaurant on our way to an air BNB. We had no idea it was so fancy. It would be a wonderful place for a wedding reception. The dinner was pricey. Two options at $15 and $20/ per person family style, but I thought it was worth it. We ordered the chicken and beef. There was a ton of really good food and a wonderful atmosphere. Would recommend this place. I'll be returning with friends or family.

Great food served family style. They also have a menu for lighter eaters. Love walking through the various shops. From gifts to snacks there are many possibilities. The tours, buggy ride, plays and musicals all mean there is something for everyone.
