As promised, here is another shot from the National Wax Museum of Lancaster County Heritage. This scene, the Amish barn raising, is considered the highlight of the museum. Barn raising has been a tradition in the United States since the 18th Century. Nowadays, it is primarily used by the Amish community (Hence the inclusion in the Lancaster County museum). This scene displays so much of the action one would see in a traditional barn raising.
This gentleman is probably the crew chief. He most likely has the most experience at raising barns.
This man is log carrying guy. Someday, if he raises enough barns, he'll be able to be the big fat man on the box.
Reminder: There are only a few days left to visit the Discover Lancaster County History Museum before it closes for good. They are trying to find a new home for the collection, but nothing solid has surfaced yet. Keep your fingers crossed.
View their official website while you still can here.
