Amish Country Trip Planner
Welcome to Amish Country!
Visitors are often inspired by the simplicity of life in Ohio's Amish Country. Horse-drawn buggies travel down country roads, quaint general stores and markets peddle an assortment of handmade goods, and the sweet smells of homemade cuisine and baked goods emanate from community eateries. The region presents plenty of opportunities to explore Amish culture, from farmers' auctions and craft fairs to museums and living history villages. Founded in the 18th century by a group of Moravian missionaries, Schoenbrunn townsite is now the site of the Schoenbrunn Village in New Philadelphia, where costumed staff, re-creations of the village's original log buildings, and a museum bring local history to life. History buffs should also check out the city museum and historic properties that line the downtown streets in Massillon, including Spring Hill house, a stop on the Underground Railroad. Canton was the home of President William McKinley, whose life is illuminated at the McKinley Museum and National Memorial.
