The Mennonite Heritage Center is a museum, historical library, and archival facility that preserves and shares the stories of three centuries of Mennonite life in southeastern Pennsylvania. They invite visitors to explore their heritage through exhibits, programs, seminars, and special events. Their long term exhibits are "Work and Hope" which depicts local Mennonite history and a fraktur gallery of 18th century illuminated folk art drawings. Changing exhibits explore themes from folk culture, faith and local history. The historical library and archives provides researchers with diaries, letters, family Bibles photographs and census records. Heritage Center programs range from Anabaptist history presentations to folk art workshops to the Annual Butter Frolic, a harvest festival held the first Saturday of October. The Heritage Center museum shop features traditional Pennsylvania German crafts such as pottery and fraktur along with books on local history, Mennonite faith and folk art.
