There is a small general information area, but we somehow expected more detailed information about the Amish and Mennonites. During a trip almost 30 years ago, we received mush more information; it was probably a different place that we couldn't find this time.

Dropped in here at the beginning of our visit to Lancaster County. It proved to be very useful. Sunday is very quiet here so we managed to plan around this and visit Stasburg railway.

The guide will advise you when you can take photos and when you can't. The Amish don't approve of photos of themselves, but if you are far enough away it might be all right.
