Many people come to participate in an auction, buying and selling, and to shop at the stores in the historic downtown. Others are here for the special festivals that take place throughout the year, and to see the enchanting lights of the Christmas season. And some visit to learn more about the Amish and Mennonites whose faith and simpler way of life holds special attraction in an age when speed and change are the hallmarks of modern-day culture.
