The story of a faith heritage, focusing on the Civil War – the pacifist response and the suffering during the burning.

CrossRoads is a 23-acre homestead with a Welcome Center, an 1854 Burkholder-Myers House with a Wash House nearby, an early 1900s Blacksmith Shop, a 1904 Whitmer School/Cove Church, an amphitheater in the woods, with a 1790 Cobbler Shop and an 1829 Weaver-Brunk Log House now under construction. The Welcome Center contains 15 large display panels that tell the story of the coming of the Mennonites and Brethren to the Shenandoah Valley and their legacy of faith and life here. A 14-minute video further highlights and interprets the faith and lifestyles of the Brethren and Mennonites in the Valley. The Welcome Center features a Gift Shop with artifacts and canned and dry foods unique to the Valley.
