The Joys of Ohio’s Amish Country

Editor’s Note: National Simplicity Day is July 12. In celebration, we are taking you on a photo tour of our favorite place, Ohio’s Amish Country, an area known for its simplicity and beautiful views. Enjoy!

Slow, relaxing and rural – welcome to Ohio’s Amish Country.

For family fun that’s close to home, Ohio’s Amish Country is the perfect weekend getaway. Avoid the city and head to the country!

We are all tired of being stuck at home – why not plan a road trip with your family to Wayne and Holmes County? Your first stop should be Lehman’s in Kidron. We are often called The Gateway to Amish Country, and we were named the Best Destination in our area (for the 5th year in a row, I humbly add).

We are working very hard to keep our store safe and clean for both customers and employees. And rest assured, when you are ready to visit, we are ready.

Listen to what our customers say about Lehman’s: 

“A step back in time Lehman’s is a fun place to see. While it is a store it is also a museum and art gallery. The old barn that is the main building is fun to see. When you go into the building don’t forget to look up and check out the construction of the old barn. The wood carving art in the buggy shop is enthralling. Beautiful work. Walking through the large store there are several items from history. The new merchandise is a step back in time. Who knew that there are places that still make this stuff. There is stuff there I have never seen before and you will be hard pressed to walk out without purchasing something that you will find very useful. Well worth a trip.”

Your store never gets old. I shopped there with my father when your grandfather was a clerk. I always stop in when I come back home to Kidron.
