Surveyed in 1830, the present farm was part of a 16 acre land grant in 1842. In 1874 the first small building was constructed, a small frame living shelter that was later used as a summer kitchen. The building of the BIG German bank-style barn followed in 1876. The original homestead, that still stands today, was constructed in the early 1890's by Noah Nissley. #TBT

Our Story

Experience the restoration of the Stahly-Nisley-Kuhns farmstead, the only Amish farm listed in The National Register of Historic Places. Widow Barbara Stahly and her five sons migrated from Germany to the southwest corner of Elkhart County, in 1839, making them, according to University of Chicago historian James Landing, likely the first Amish settlers in Indiana.

By 1873 son Christian had acquired eighty acres of land to build a house and barn for his son Moses. From that beginning rose the main house in 1893. Moses Stahly sold the farm to his wife's cousin, Noah Nisley, who at his retirement, in turn sold it to his son-in-law Manasses Kuhns. Moses sold the farm because he was moving his family to Kansas.

The farm was purchased from the Kuhns estate for the purpose of preserving the buildings and traditions of the three generations of Amish families who lived on the farm and tilled the soil.

Following a year of meticulous restoration, Amish Acres opened to the public in 1970. Since then, visitors have experienced life as it was then and still is now for most Amish families living in and around Nappanee.

It has been a busy May. And we feel pretty grateful. With all that is crumbling in the world around us, we feel pretty fortunate that we get to be present for such joyful moments. And it’s always humbling when people ask us to be a part of them. Cadyn and Zak said “I Do” earlier this May at The Barns at Nappanee, Home of Amish Acres. The threat of severe weather made it quite unpredictable, but this sweet couple made the most of it, and what a beautiful day it was. To Cadyn and Zak, and to all the wonderful people who have invited us into their lives for such beautiful beginnings, we thank you. ❤️ Congratulations! 🍾 🥂

According to Upwork an estimated 22% of the workforce will be working remotely by 2025 “...By sheer numbers, the U.S. is a working-from-home economy. Almost twice as many employees are working from home as at work. More strikingly, if we consider the contribution to U.S. gross domestic product based on their earnings, this enlarged group of work-from-home employees now accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity.” - Nicholas Bloom, Stanford University News https://news.stanford.edu/2020/06/29/snapshot-new-working-home-economy/ As internal communication environments change rapidly, we believe it is imperative that you set your team up for success by ensuring that their communication tool box is fully stocked.
