Meet Noah and his family and be stupefied at the magnitude of animals which were brought onto the Ark. Learn how Noah and crew kept the animals safe, how they fed and cared for their family and animals.

Barn Quilts and Amish Goods
September 13, 2023
Driving the highways and backroads you'll quickly spot colossal roadside canvases - one barn quilt after another! You'll also want to be on the look out for the horse-drawn buggies of the Amish Community- all during our tour of Hart County, Kentucky!
Barn quilts pull at our heartstrings as they combine two endearing symbols: barns and quilts. For me, there's nothing like passing a barn and getting a whiff of the scent of tobacco. Bringing to mind fond memories spent in the barn hand-tying tobacco with family members. Or snuggling under that handmade quilt, quilted by your mom or grandmother. No two Barn Quilt blocks are the same, just as traditional quilts vary in size, color and style so do Barn Quilts. These two treasures combine to make us feel memories of the past and can inspire our futures.
Amish migration often follows patterns of kinship. In 1989 the Amish began settling in Hart County. It is the mostly densely populated Amish community in Kentucky with approximately 200 families living there. On our jaunt though the backroads, you'll have the opportunity to stop at Detweiler's Country Store, a variety store with foods, dry goods, books, clothing, potted plants and a wide array of amenities, Dutch County Fabrics with notions, fabrics, baby items and quilting supplies. We'll also stop at Yoders' Produce for some of the best produce you've ever eaten! Another stop will be to Pleasant View Greenhouse for all your planting needs.
Amble with us along the backroads of Hart County where Barn Quilts abound and Amish goods are both delicious and delightful.

Christmas in Cincinnati
December 30, 2020
Krohn Conservatory and Coney Island are decked out In all their glory! Join us for a visit to the most beautiful of Conservatories and the amazing light show at Coney Island. Under a thatched roof, the log stable features a variety of live animals- several sheep (Molly, Polly, Holly and Dolly), a cow and a donkey and life-size, dressed figures positioned to recreate the story of the birth of Jesus. The Crib of the Nativity is one of my favorite places to visit during the holiday season. Moving into a transformed Winter Wonderland, the Conservatory is glowing with twinkle lights and beautiful poinsettias. Minature trains chug through the replicas of Cincinnati landmarks and poinsettias and other flowers. You'll fall in love with the Conservatory and all its finery.
Heading next to one of the region’s biggest synchronized holiday light displays with more than 2 million lights synchronized to various holiday songs. You will have a hard time taking it all in! A night not to be missed.
