Friendly Amish couple statues, 2020.

Roadside America

It looks as though Roadside America might fade into history! The giant Amish people can't believe their eyes that the building is for sale.

Roadside America -- the classic model railroad attraction, not the awesome travel guide -- has been on the market since 2018. The current owner wants to find someone who'll keep the place open and preserve it as is.

Loved this place. $8 admission is beyond worth it. Amazing train/miniature villages created by one man, built in 1958. Family still runs it.

Roadside America is an unforgettable panorama of life in the rural United States. The exhibit spans more than two hundred years in time and lets you see, in exquisite miniature, how people lived and worked in pioneer days, through the years since then, right up to the present.

Roadside America Miniature Village

This unique place was a part of our 7th grade field trip way back in 1972, along with a stop at Hershey Amusement park. After many years of yearning to go back, it finally happened in September 2007. It seems to have remained virtually unchanged after all these years. My wife and I were able to have a special closing ceremony -- the night show -- just for us, as we were the only people there first thing in the morning when it opened.
