Amish Country History & Heritage

Your Window To Another World

From Amish culture to fine art, history and RVs, there’s a museum for almost everything and everyone along the Heritage Trail. Elkhart’s lavish 1910 Ruthmere estate reflects the ornate lifestyle of a family living in America’s Gilded Age. While exhibits at the Menno-Hof center highlight Amish and Mennonite heritage and the simple Amish way of life. Bristol boasts the Elkhart County Historical Museum, a treasure trove of exhibits that illuminate Northern Indiana’s settlement and growth. A massive steam locomotive is the centerpiece of Elkhart’s New York Central Railroad Museum. In Goshen, you can peek through the bullet-proof windows of a police stronghold built during John Dillinger’s heyday.
