Butchering the
Butchering the "Last Indians."

Lancaster County Wax Museum (Gone)

Field review by the editors.

Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Lancaster County Wax Museum was opened in the late 1960s by Earl Clark, the owner of the adjacent Dutch Wonderland. Along its one-way visitor flow, it displayed 32 wax depictions of Amish and regional history -- bridge burning, Lititz pretzel making, Christiana riot, butchering of the last Indians. The sprawling Amish barn raising diorama was animated.

Opened May 6, 1969 and closed December 27, 2006.
