Things To Do In Ohio Amish Country Over New Year 2015

Here is information on things to do in Ohio Amish County over the 2014-2015 New Year's holiday up to and including Old Christmas. Some businesses keep irregular hours and there are also some scheduled auctions immediately before and after New Year's Day.

Homestead Furniture, 8233 State Rt. 241, in Mt. Hope will be open New Year's Eve Day until 2 p.m. On New Year's Day they will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  At the time of this post, this is the only business that I've found that will be open on New Year's day, 2015.  Because they are an Amish business, they will be closed on Old Christmas, January 6, 2015.

Kidron, Ohio Hitching Post

Keim Lumber, our most significant lumberyard and "Everything you might want for your house store" will be open Monday, December 29 and Tuesday, December 30.  They will be closed New Year's Eve Day and New Year's Day.  They will open January 2 & 3, closed on January 4 because it is Sunday, open January 5, and closed January 6, 2015 for Old Christmas.

The normally held Thursday livestock in Kidron, Ohio, will instead be held on Friday, January 2, 2015.

Lehman's Hardware and Warther's Museum will be closed on New Year's Day, as will the typical retails stores in Berlin and throughout the county.
