As you travel west on State Route 39 from Interstate 77 you will encounter the most unique mixture of modern conveniences and old fashioned living imaginable.
Modern businesses, chain stores and restaurants intermingle with the stores, shops, businesses and eateries reminiscent of yesteryear.
Along the way, an old farm silo has been given a new life as a giant billboard. You’ll find the traditional little strip mall, the Beldon Brick plant spreading across the valley and other modern amenities. These give way to rolling hills and farmland dotted with signs advertising Amish businesses.
Looking For Fine Furniture? Get a Latté - To Go!
You'll be coming to a place we highly recommend. Be sure to stop at Weavers, the Fine Furniture Place.
On one of our visits we had a unique experience. Towards the back of the main showroom, a man had set up a small coffee shop. He was offering free samples of any number of specialty coffees, lattés, cappuccinos, and hot chocolate. He had a winsome personality and was obviously enjoying what he was doing.
He explained that he was going to be opening a coffee shop in Sugarcreek Ohio. We stood there conversing as if we had known each other for some time.
We soon learned that this man giving out the samples was actually the owner of the furniture store, Mr. Weaver himself! He also owns Weaver Barns a little ways down the road.
He originally started by selling Amish-made outdoor furniture in the Canton area. He later began the manufacturing of fine furniture at the current location. And things just kept growing from there.
Wallhouse Coffee is officially open. They are located just east of town on the north side of SR 39. When you are in the area you'll not want to miss this experience. They sell ice cream too! So stop in and be sure to tell them that we sent you.
One of our favorite destinations is just before you actually enter the village of Sugarcreek Ohio. The Dutch Valley complex rises on the south side of SR 39 silhouetted by a backdrop of beautiful hills and an Amish farm.
They have very professional displays with audio information at the touch of button.
See an Amish kitchen, learn how cheese was made in huge copper kettles, discover the Sugarcreek Ohio's Swiss heritage, admire the antique fire fighting equipment, find out what an Alphorn was used for, see how "The Budget" got its start - and so much more.
Admission is free though they do ask for a donation.
