The Amish Interpretive Center was created in 1994 to provide a series of permanent exhibits relating to the European history of the Anabaptist movement; relate the history of the Arthur Amish settlement from its 1865 beginnings; preserve historically significant artifacts from the Amish community; and provide an exhibition area that relates to the subject of Anabaptism.

The doors opened on November 8, 1996, and within the next year 3,800 guests visited the center. Now ten years old, the center has seen incredible growth. In 2006 alone, the Center saw 18,171 guests.
