877-438-5346. At Lehman's, being old-fashioned is always in fashion. That's why our massive, 32,000-square-foot retail store contains four pre-Civil War era buildings, including a Buggy Barn cinema, where you can relax on Amish-made hickory church pews while learning about organic gardening, oil lamp restoration or wood stove maintenance. Jay Lehman founded the store in 1955 to serve the local Amish and others without electricity. His vision was to preserve the past for future generations. "I was concerned that some day the Amish would not be able to maintain their simple ways of life because these products would no longer be available," he said. His goal was, and still is, to provide authentic, historical products to those seeking a simpler life.
