Mennonite Heritage Center
Steven Diehl, Executive Director of the Mennonite Heritage Center, was our guest speaker at our regular meeting on November 7, 2018. Steve explained that the mission is to educate, inspire and witness to the church and community by collecting, preserving and sharing the Anabaptist/Mennonite story. The Mennonite Heritage Center houses a permanent exhibit Work and Hope, fraktur and changing exhibits, an historical library and archives, and a museum store. The Mennonite Heritage Center tells the story of Mennonite faith and life in eastern Pennsylvania.  It is home to the Mennonite Historians of Eastern Pennsylvania. The museum has over 12,000 items in its collection including hundreds of examples of fraktur. We thank Steve for his exciting presentation and the museum for its important presence in our community.
