28th Annual Zwanzigstein Fest - July 7, 2018
BE LIKE LIVING STONES
"You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house."
1 Peter 2:5
As our forefathers (twenty families) traveled from Europe to settle here, they, too, must have realized the mighty hand of God and truly worshiped him. When our children ask, we can tell them of this mighty God.
And so Zwanzigstein.
The purpose of the Zwanzigstein Fest is to preserve, celebrate, and accurately portray our religious and cultural heritage in Lewis County. Since 1991 the Heritage Farm has provided the site for visitors to learn about our Anabaptist faith legacy and rural life of years past through stories, exhibits, tours, demonstrations, and fundraising venues such as foods and crafts.
