“"Exellent learning experience"”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

I would first like to thank Don and Jean our tour guides, they made us feel quite comfortable. We started our tour off with a very informative video and then Don took us on a tour of the buildings, I had recently broke my ankle and was wearing a boot so he was so kind to allow us to drive to the different buildings. Don is very interesting and made us feel at home. I cant wait to come back and see the spring house completed ! A must see for those visiting the area.

“An education”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

Though I've visited about 3-4 times, each visit adds to my knowledge and strengthens my appreciation of the heritage of the Brethren-Mennonite community that is so well founded in the Shenandoah Valley. It's easy to reach and takes just a few minutes to bring you to appreciate this heritage.

“Learn interesting facts”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

If you have any interest in the development of religious freedom in the Shenandoah Valley, this center is worth your time. Friendly docents answer any questions. Tours of old structures reveal a simple life . Will give new appreciation of cooperation of religious groups

This museum complex focuses on Brethren, Dunkard, Mennonite settlers in Rockingham County, Virginia. They have several special events throughout the year. That is the time to visit.

“Great visit”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

Don & Jane were the volunteer guides for the heritage center on the day we visited. They were most friendly and took the time to give us the tour and show us a video. Interesting history of Mennonites and Brethren in the Shenandoah Valley. My family was rather touched by their hospitality! I hope to revisit the area someday.
