AAP has just informed me of progress on the Stoltzfus House project, which seeks to build a barn-museum at the restored home of Nicholas Stoltzfus.
Stoltzfus was an 18th-century Amishman whose descendants number one million, and to whom roughly 98% of Lancaster Amish are related.
I wrote a bit about Stoltzfus House after attending a benefit event in Intercourse last summer.
Seems like the project is well on its way, but needs a bit of extra help to get to the finish line. Of the $300,000 price tag, about $60,000 is still needed. To learn more or contribute, go to nicholasstoltzfus.com.

Hi Ruben, I believe that is Zachary Stoltzfus, who is the son of the Stoltzfus Meats owner if I’m not mistaken?
