    largest Amish buggy

    by davecallahan Updated Feb 19, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Wendell Austin Forge company created this huge buggy for who-knows-why!
    It is about 10 feet tall and 13 feet long and weighs more than a half-ton.

    Good for a couple of quick pictures and that is about it. (there are also great bakeries and cheese places in Berlin)

    the location of the company is at: 7007 route 62 (near route 39).
    you can take self-guided tours of the company where the buggy is on display.

    Wayne County"s Famous Lehman"s

    by deecat Written May 16, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although Lehman's is not in Holmes County, it is in the neighboring county of Wayne in the town called Kidron. This is a famous place, and after visiting it, I can see why. It's an old-fashioned general store that's served the local Amish for two generations. They have cast iron cookware, unusual hand tools, non-electric lighting, kitchen gadgets, gas refrigerators, old-fashioned ice cream makers, copper kettles, butter churns, hand-turned grain mills, oil lamps and woodstoves.

    Their literature reads that it is "what your great-great grandparents' idea of a department store" is.
    Lehman's was built in 1915 and only a 30' x 40' general store & garage. Today, Lehman's covers an entire acre under one roof!

    They also have post cards, Amish candy, children's toys, and other small items.
    I purchased Amish popcorn, chocolate-covered peanuts, and Licorice for my husband, Allan. I bought myself some "Black-Jack" Gum!

    Located on Holmes CR216/Wayne CR52 in Kidron, Ohio.

    Jill and I had such fun in this store; I think that you will, too.j
