Additional Details:
Lancaster takes especial pride in the Landis Valley Museum. Here you may see over 200,000 items that, until recently, have never before been accessible to visitors. Spread before you is a complete picture of the life of the Pennsylvania German farmer from 1710 to 1900. Exhibits are housed in five buildings, typical of old-time country life. You will see furniture, farm and household tools, a large gun collection, beautiful grandfather clocks by Ford and Schreiner of Lancaster, Amish wagons and carts, a valuable collection of Family Bibles and old books - among them Benjamin Franklin's Almanac and volumes from the pre-revolutionary press of the Ephrata Cloisters.
