Step back in time with a visit to Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum, considered by many to be the “best-kept secret in Pennsylvania.” Founded by brothers Henry and George Landis, it is the largest “living history” village in the country dedicated to the total preservation of early Pennsylvania German/Dutch life.
Our authentic crossroads village includes historic buildings with costumed guide interpretation, a vast collection of historic agricultural equipment, and ongoing farming based on 1700’s and 1800’s practices and traditions, using historic breeds of animals and crops authentic to the period. Through its Heirloom Seed Project, Landis Valley preserves over 240 varieties of seeds—the same types of seeds that were in the pockets of the first Pennsylvania German settlers.
Your groups will delight in the many living history demonstrations we offer, including traditional crafts, period manufacturing, farming and food preservation, weaving and cooking. It’s through presentations like these that we build a bridge of understanding from past to present. History comes alive for our visitors. At the end of your visit, you’ll appreciate more deeply the accomplishments, hardships, and triumphs of the early Pennsylvania Germans in Lancaster County.
Our Living History Themed Tours provide a wonderful sampling of Pennsylvania German life.
Length of visit: allow 2.5-3 hours for an enjoyable visit. We can customize your tour based on your time limits.
