    What a wonderful piece of Pennsylvania German history to soak up for a couple hours. Very well-maintained grounds and 19th century buildings to tour, and the staff is well-informed and gave excellent talks. Highly recommended for lovers of nature, gardens and farming, the outdoors, architecture, and colonial history.

    I am happy to have a chance to give a review of Rough and Tumble because we have been Vendors in the Rough and Tumble Threshermans's ReUnion for a bout 7 years now. Last week we set up on Tuesday. The Tent people set up our rented Tent the day before. We had a wonderful time being Vendors from Wed to Saturday with a Great turn out of people. There is so much to see and do for people who come to this show. There are 2 Steam Train Rides, A Stationary Steam Engine Museum, a Sawmill, Shingle Mill, Blacksmith Shop, Line Shaft Machine Shop and many events during the year. We look forward to this show every year. This a Wonderful show to bring family with so much to see and do. The Steam Tractors are Incredable to see and hear the 12 noon lunch break with Bells and Whistles tooting off in different octives.

    whilst on a tour of the town went into the museum. Lots of art to view. Some very pretty pictures. Next door was the tobacco shop which now is closed but belonged to the Demuth family

    This stately colonial house in downtown Lancaster is now home of the Preservation Society of Lancaster. They have offices there but have a free self guided tour of this nicely renovated 18th century town home which has a number of interesting artifacts. The house was home of Andrew Ellicott, a famous surveyor who worked on the plans for the development of Washington, DC. Because of his fame, before the Lewis and Clark Expedition began, Thomas Jefferson had Meriwether Lewis travel to this house in Lancaster for 3 weeks to learn surveying from Ellicott. There are exhibits about that time as well as surveying equipment. An interesting part of of US history.
