Menno-Hof celebrating 25 years

 

Located in Shipshewana, Menno-Hof offers a place for visitors to learn about the faith and life of the Amish and Mennonites. In 1986, with the help of many volunteer workers, Menno-Hof had an old fashioned barn-raising to build the structure that houses the Amish-Mennonite story. The facility opened in May 1988.

To kick off a year-long celebration for Menno-Hof’s 25th anniversary, a reunion has been planned for persons who have volunteered at Menno-Hof any time from 1988 to the present. The event will be held Sunday, May 19, beginning with a program at 3 p.m. at Shore Mennonite Church in Shipshewana, followed by refreshments at Menno-Hof at 4 p.m.

RSVP by May 13 is requested at info@mennohof.org or 260-768-4117.

Menno-Hof is located at 510 S. Van Buren St. in Shipshewana and offers interactive tours with hands-on activities for the whole family. The gift shop features handmade items crafted by local Amish and Mennonites. Menno-Hof is a non-profit organization operated by a board of Amish, Beachy Amish, Conservative Mennonite, and Mennonite Church USA members.
