  • Saw this place on 'things to do' in the area and it seemed from the limited information from other reviews, their website, and photos it was a historic center that would provide history and tours of Brethren and Mennonite and how the people of this faith lived during the 1700 & 1800s. Unfortunately, this was not it. This is more of a religious educational experience. Its all about the religion and what the Mennonite faith is about. The tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable. There are many old/historic buildings on site but our guide really didn't seem interested in talking about history. He was very interested in talking about the Mennonite religion. We wished it was more of a historical tour/experience.
  • We really enjoyed it. The 18th and 19th century homes were perfectly restored, we received a thorough and personalized tour with a particular focus on things that would pique the interest of our 10 yr old. Also they gave a great broad history of Anabaptist history in the Shenandoah Valley.
