Nicholas stoltzfus

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
