Ephrata Cloister

Step back in time to the 1700s and experience the living conditions chosen by founder Conrad Beissel.  This unique place was developed as a compound where the cloistered lived the utmost simple, celibate, and rather uncomfortable, life in preparation for the afterlife.  Visit the grounds and go on guided or self-guided tours.

Hans Herr House

Built in 1719, the Hans Herr House is the oldest building in Lancaster County, and the oldest Mennonite meeting house in the Western hemisphere.  Come visit the museum to experience life in the early 1700s through the history of farming, colonial life, and religious artifacts.  A replica of a Native American Longhouse honors the native people of Pennsylvania living among the settlers in the early days of Lancaster County.
