About Amish Acres Historic Farm and Heritage Resort
- Claim to fame: The Stahly-Nissley-Kuhns farmstead is the only Amish farm listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
- How it started: In 1839, German widow Barbara Stahly migrated with her five sons to the southwest corner of Elkhart County. According to University of Chicago historian James Landing, they were probably the first Amish settlers in Indiana.
- Over the years: By 1873, Barbara's son, Christian, had acquired 80 acres of land to build the house and barn. All told, three generations of Amish families called the farm home. In 1970, the property opened to the public, allowing visitors to learn about the Amish lifestyle.
What You Can Do Here
- Experience the Amish lifestyle: Listen to a guide's insight as you walk across the oaken floorboards of the 140-year-old homestead, wind through the 12-room white-frame house, wander into the barn, and explore the outbuildings.
- Hitch a ride: Hop aboard a wagon and cruise around the 80-acre working farm, which features livestock, barnyard hens, gardens, and an apple orchard.
- Make a day of it: At the farm, you can also have dinner, stay overnight at one of the property's inns, or even catch a show at the acclaimed Round Barn Theatre. which has produced more than 100 Broadway musicals in the last two decades.
