Adirondack Mennonite Heritage Farm

"Whether we acknowledge it or not, whether we even know the stories or not, we are all shaped by those who have come before us. They have left their mark on our lives and our churches and our faith. Retelling their stories of faith can help to nourish the roots of our lives as they grow deeper. Too quickly we forget who it was that helped shape our faith."  -Rejoice Magazine

The Adirondack Mennonite Heritage Association purchased the Moser homestead (Adirondack Mennonite Heritage Farm) on the Erie Canal Road, Croghan, New York, (near Kirschnerville) in the late 1980s as a living history museum.

As of 2010, the “Moser Homestead” was listed on the New York and National Register of Historic Places. The Mennonite Heritage Farm consists of a family dwelling (built in 1845) and a compact grouping of granary (dates mid- to late-nineteenth century) and two English barns date to 1874. The home was used for worship services in the nineteenth and early twentieth century.

24th Annual Zwanzigstein Fest (was held July 5, 2014)

Documentary Premiere - August 30, 2014
“Simple Servants” is the powerful, little-known story of the Lewis County Mennonites whose epic struggle to freely practice their faith led them to the rugged wilderness of Northern New York, where they finally found a place to call home. The Mennonites sprung out of the Protestant Reformation and faced more than 300 years of persecution in Europe, including the threat of execution from crown to pulpit. They journeyed to North America in search of religious freedom as many others before them who came to practice their faith. Join us for a compelling story of human triumph as individuals overcame tremendous hardships to live their faith, and went on to become a powerful movement whose commitment to service, volunteerism, and peacemaking became a model for the world.

The documentary film is open to the public (free) on Saturday, August 30, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Lowville Town Hall Theater at 5428 Shady Avenue. The program will include a screening of the documentary (6 to 6:45 p.m.), a question-and-answer panel (7 to 7:30 p.m.), and a short piano concert by Jacqueline Schwab from 7:30 – 8 p.m.
