Plan now for the MAY 2023 Events at Lehman’s in the heart of Ohio Amish Country!
For family fun close to home, plan to visit Lehman’s, in the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country.
Founded in 1955 by Jay Lehman to serve the local Amish, today, Lehman’s ships practical products all over the country. The retail store is a rambling 35,000 square-foot building, filled with thousands of products, museum-quality antiques, and four pre-Civil War era buildings. It’s like going to a museum and shopping at the same time. Lehman’s is open every day except Sunday and is always open at Lehmans.com.
Marvel at the non-electric appliances like wood heating and cooking stoves; shop in the year-round Christmas store; enjoy the toy room and food samples in the pantry; appreciate the oil lamps and lanterns; and spend time in the massive housewares department.
