History of Menno-Hof

More and more people came to the tourist town of Shipshewana in the decade of the ‘70s due to its huge flea market. There was a growing consensus among Mennonite groups of Northern Indiana to have a place to tell our story. In 1986 with the help of many volunteer workers, Menno-Hof had a massive barn-raising to build the beautiful structure housing the Amish-Mennonite story. The new facility opened in May of 1988. Menno-Hof is a non-profit organization operated by a board of Amish, Beachy Amish, Conservative Mennonite and Mennonite Church USA members.

Vision of Menno-Hof

Menno-Hof engages the church and the world in meaningful conversation, encouraging faith in, and faithfulness to, Jesus Christ from an Anabaptist perspective.

Mission of Menno-Hof

  • Stories of God’s work in the Amish, Hutterite and Mennonite communities,
  • An invitation to consider becoming a follower of Jesus, and
  • Encouragement for Anabaptists and other Christians in practicing faith discipleship in our world today.
