My cousin and I went to the Lancaster area and began the day by visiting the Mennonite Information Center. We watched the free movie and got very useful information and a map from their desk. They have very nice and knowledgeable people

If you want to know what the Mennonite and Amish believe and practice, the 2 movies they show will do this. Great gift shop.
