Lancaster County has become a national model for its acclaimed Heritage Program. Designed to highlight sites and people that authetically interpret the special traditions, cultures, buildings and crafts that exemplify Lancaster County.
The designation from the Lancaster County Planning Commission is awarded only to those properties, craftsman and attractions that tell authentic stories that accurately interpret local culture. In this case, the Amish Country Homestead was the first, and is currently the only, Amish attraction to receive this prestigious designation. No other Amish attraction or house tour has met the strict standards of the authenticity of its furnishings and the interpretive information provided by the guides. The Heritage Site status is an honor we highly value.
And, in 2010, the Amish Visit-in-Person Tour became the first, and only, tour to receive the highly prized Heritage Tour designation that is also part of this program. Read more about it in the tours section of the website.
These designations recognize the quality of what we wish to provide visitors, and our commitment to provide experiences that exemplify what is special, and what we treasure, about this wonderful place we call home.
