Amish Heritage Welcome Center and Museum
The Amish Heritage Farm Museum was one of the first Amish farms settled in Tennessee in 1944, when the Amish emigrated from Ohio and Mississippi. It was a fully functioning Amish farm, until several years ago, when the family sold the farm and moved further out into the country. Today, due to the generosity of a local Amish family, both the Amish House and Dawdi Haus have been restored back to their original state, complete with period furnishings and artifacts from the 1944 era. A replica one room Amish school house was also added to the grounds and has been set up to accurately depict a local Amish school house. Our guided, educational tours offer a rare glimpse into Amish culture, and their daily lives.
Tours include both the Amish farmhouse and Dawdi Haus Museum, Amish school house, Harness Shop, and Hen-house with animals. We even have an authentic Amish buggy that you can take pictures in! Photos allowed on this Farm ONLY! The Amish Heritage Farm Museum is also available for private events.
We also offer Horse Drawn Wagon Rides through the beautiful Amish countryside with a knowledgeable, local guide.
