A STOP AT THE WORLDS FAMOUS LEHMAN’S STORE

Why were we voted the best place to visit in Amish Country? Why is there "a store nowhere else" like us? Because we exist to create A Simpler Life for you and your loved ones. Lehman’s is really like an old fashion mercantile (a mall from the 1850s perhaps) There are a number of stores within Lehman’s.  Our housewares section is a dream for the cook, baker, and chef because it is full kitchen gadgets, cast iron, baking, cooking, and food preservation merchandise. Knives, bowls, and food solutions.
