Our story began 95 years ago. Using only hands and tools, Wendell August Forge began to craft pieces of enduring beauty. Each piece, a celebration of the artistry and history of our craft. While in our 95 years we struggled to survive a great fire and a constantly evolving industry, we’ve also lived our own American dream. We are still here today because of our dedicated craftsmen, our incredible community, and most of all... you. Thank you for a marvelous 95 years. In 2018, we celebrate!

As you enjoy the breathtaking beauty and simplicity of Ohio’s Amish Country, a visit to our largest store on the outskirts of Berlin, OH is sure to be a trip highlight. Berlin is nestled in the rolling hills of Holmes County, home to the largest Amish and Mennonite community in the world. The Amish are quiet people who hold fast to their traditions and way of life. They are renowned for their crafts, and the quality of their work is exceptional.

This combination of tradition and quality craftsmanship unite at our store the minute you see the store driving down Route 62. The 13,000 square foot timber frame facility, located beneath the blue and yellow water tower is the largest of its kind in the State of Ohio. It houses many exciting attractions, including a 5,000 square foot showroom filled with our unique, one-of-a-kind handcrafted metal giftware that Wendell August is famous for. As you enter our front door, you are immediately captured by our beautiful product and the vastness of the space. The timber frame construction is awe inspiring in and of itself. You can't help noticing the World's Largest Amish Buggy, made especially for us by an Amish buggy maker just down the road from us. Gather your family and friends for a picture right in front of the massive buggy on a genuine buggy seat! Another guest favorite is the old time Nickelodeon, certain to entertain with its multiple instruments playing memorable songs.

For history buffs and those wanting to get a better feel for our story dating back to our company founding in 1923, be sure to stroll through our museum area and take in the short video in our guest theater. Here you’ll walk through and be inspired by the collectible Wendell August giftware from the 1920s - 1950s. The movie tells both the company history and teaches you more about how each one of our gift items is made one-at-a-time by hand in our American workshops.

You will then enjoy the chance to walk through our workshop space where we have set up all of the tools of our trade from the die engraving through the creation of our product. You will get a great sense of how our craftsmen in Pennsylvania make our wonderful giftware.

Once you have experienced all of this, be sure to try your hand at being a craftsperson yourself in our interactive hand hammering room and take home a treasure made by you!

Finally, in the gift shop portion of our facility, our friendly associates will assist you with the well over 1,000 different gift giving items created in our Pennsylvania workshops. Our unique line of Amish and country designs and mementos, Christmas ornaments and plates, wedding gifts, baby gifts, military gifts, serving pieces, home and desk accessories for all styles and tastes, and jewelry are all showcased beautifully.

Ohio’s Amish Country has much to see…and make sure our gift shop is on your “Must See” list!
