DAY 2... WARTHER MUSEUM … We drive over the New River Bridge, tallest single arch bridge in America, with a picture stop, before continuing along mountain roads. Crossing the Ohio River, we leave the mountains and enter the rolling hills and farms of Ohio, prime lands for the Amish people.  In Dover, visit the Warther Museum, where Master Carver Ernest Warther presents a display of hand-carved wonders.  Using only his knife, file, and native ingenuity, he has carved the history of steam locomotives, ivory collections of Great Events in American History, and being a great admirer of Abraham Lincoln, at the age of 80 carved an 8 foot ebony and ivory replica of the Lincoln Funeral Train.  You will have a chance to stroll through the Swiss-style flower gardens and visit Mrs. Warther’s Button House, a collection of 73,000 buttons arranged in beautiful designs.  We spend 2 nights in the Amish Country in a charming country inn with dinner at a local restaurant.

OHIO AMISH … This morning begins our narrated tour of the Amish Country of Ohio ..Lehmans Hardware, an institution in the heart of the county that is a meeting place for both "plain and fancy" people alike. We visit the markets, see the farms, stop at a cheese factory for samples, and tour the picturesque villages that dot the countryside.   This evening is a quite a treat, as we dine on an Amish Farm, with local entertainment.
