Amish and Mennonite Heritage Center
Located near Berlin, Ohio, the center exists to educate people about the Amish and Mennonites. The Center's breathtaking mural titled "Behalt" is a 10-by-265-foot cyclorama that illustrates the heritage of the Amish and Mennonite people from their Anabaptist beginning in Zurich, Switzerland in 1525 to the present day. The Center also features a book shop with a significant collection of works about the Anabaptists as well as a gift shop with items provided by the Mennonite Central Committee's "Self Help" program. The Center is located at 5798 County Road 77, just east of Berlin and can be reached by telephone at 330/893-3192. Click here for more information on their web site.

>>>Update<<< Kyle Beachy "The Slide"

January 27, 2009
I'm writing with a simple announcement which let's just go ahead and get it out there: my debut novel, The Slide, is now, as of this very morning, available on store shelves across the country. This is terribly exciting for me, and I cannot possibly stress how important these first few days of sales are. It's a numbers game, this one, and quite literally every sale makes a big difference.
