People come to Lancaster on vacation for several reasons…we have some fantastic restaurants, lots of shopping, gorgeous country roads you can get lost on….and the Amish. Lancaster County is Amish Country. They are a unique community, with a culture and traditions that are unfathomable to most of us. Because their lifestyle is so different, the Amish become intriguing.
On our property at Plain & Fancy, we are lucky to have a partner that helps us understand the truth’s about the Amish community. The Amish Experience provides tours of the surrounding farmlands, guided tours of the Lancaster County’s only designated “Heritage Site” Amish House and Amish one-room-school, and the spectacular F/X Theater production of “Jacob’s Choice.”
“Jacob’s Choice” follows the emotional journey of an Amish teenager named Jacob as he struggles to choose between two worlds; joining the Amish church, or leaving behind family and community to become a part of the modern world. This compelling story is told in a unique experiential theater setting, sure to draw you in!
