Mennonite Heritage Center

Mennonite Heritage Center

Its architecture, with lines modeling the simplicity of traditional Pennsylvania Mennonite meetinghouses, points towards the spiritual center of Mennonite life. The concept was that "church" was congregation, not the building in which they "met." The building also suggests rural images of mill, barn and house, while exhibits show the movement toward a more urban society, giving contemporary expression to a deep-rooted heritage.

We hope you enjoy our work.
