During the Eighth Annual Nicholas Stolzfus House Benefit Auction, Amish furniture will be sold to raise money for the construction of a barn and heritage center.According to the Reading Eagle, Jeff Stoltzfus, a descendant of the Amish family, wants to create a heritage center at the 1770 Nicholas Stoltzfus House in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. One element he plans to add to the center, however, seems utterly contradictory to his roots - an interactive computer kiosk."This is not about pushing the Amish into the modern era," Paul Kurtz, a member of the Nicholas Stoltzfus House Preservation Committee, told the news source. Instead, they believe that technology can help make Amish history more accessible.The committee is within $35,000 of the $120,000 needed to build the additions, and all are hoping that the auction of Amish furniture, quilts, and other crafts will help them reach their goals.Amish furniture is a stunning addition to any home, as it adds warmth and handcrafted beauty, and the timeless pieces mix well with a multitude of decors.
