WELCOME FROM THE CHAMBER

$

t first glance, Holmes County seems a contradiction: progressive businesses that embrace cutting edge technology vs. an old-fashioned culture that honors simplicity. In truth, the apparent contradiction actually helps secure Holmes County’s quality of life and thriving economy. The Holmes County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau seeks to protect and promote this healthy balance by fostering a business-friendly environment. When businesses thrive, residents have a higher standard of living. Our community hosts cutting-edge companies such as ProVia Door, a leading residential entry door manufacturer. At the same time, we’re also home to the world’s largest Amish community. Manufacturing, tourism and agriculture are our three leading industries. And in Holmes County, the three go hand-in-hand. We have the largest hardwood furniture manufacturing district in the nation, with more than 400 wood shops across the region. And consumers can choose locally produced fine furniture from 30 retail shops. So, the manufacturing facilities actually feed the retail shops, which rely on the more than four million tourists who visit Holmes County each year. In addition, many of the Amish craftsmen who build the furniture use the extra income to supplement their family income, which supports their agrarian way of life. The Holmes County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau also serves as the visitor center for tourists in the area.

We display brochures, maps and event listings; promote the region through our Map & Visitors’ Guide, place ads in national and regional magazines and newspapers; list all of our member businesses on our website; promote the area through media relations; fulfill visitor packet requests; and answer more than 10,000 phone calls every year. Our website for visitors, www. visitamishcountry.com, receives about half a million unique visits annually. The Holmes County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau is here to help our members succeed. And we do so through many member benefits, such as: a workers’ compensation group-rating program; discount on group health insurance; Safety Council; monthly membership meetings; The Hardwood Furniture Guild; Amish Country Lodging Council; and tracking of local, state and national issues that impact local businesses. If you’re not a current Holmes County Chamber member, I encourage you to learn more about us. By working together, MAST we can ensure Holmes County’s economy remains strong, while preserving the culture, landscape and small-town feel that makes us so special.

Sincerely, Shasta Mast Executive Director Holmes County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau

Commerce indicate a commitment to continuous growth and civic improvements. These efforts were made to help create more jobs, more payroll dollars and a better community in which to live. Dues are used to provide funding for the staff and maintain the headquarters, develop literature, manage member services, conduct special activities and provide resources and information to thousands of callers and correspondents each day.

THE HOLMES COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY & MILLERSBURG GLASS MUSEUM The Millersburg Glass Museum has found a new, permanent home on the campus of the Holmes County Cultural Center Campus. Located on the lower level of the main building, the museum is handicap-accessible in a facility that has been renovated, designed to highlight the glass and its history. Inside the interpretive room, guests can familiarize themselves with the history of the local glass plant, its workers and owner, John Fenton. Beyond, they’ll absorb the chronological arrangement of the magnificent glasswork created from within the bowels of the factory and its kilns. Find out why these sterling masterpieces remain works of art cherished by collectors worldwide. Ask about featured pieces and collections on loan to the museum from some of these private collectors.

From top to bottom, ballroom to basement, the Victorian House rooms feature many themed collections of the Holmes County Historical Society. The house has been featured on both HGTV and Victorian Home Magazine. It’s not just physical vestiges of past residents that remain in the home... so do their spirits. After several investigations by members of the Central Ohio Paranormal Research Group, there’s no question the house is haunted. Special paranormal group tours can be arrange by appointment.

AREA ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS THE AMISH & MENNONITE HERITAGE CENTER Contact Information – 5798 CR 77, Millersburg, PO Box 324, Berlin; (330) 893-3192, director@amheritagecenter.com, www. behalt.com. Hours – March-Nov., Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Dec.-Feb., Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission – Call for prices; group rates available. Amenities – The historic and religious heritage of the Amish, Mennonite and Hutterite people is illustrated on a circular mural measuring 265 feet in length and 10 feet in height. The mural is named Behalt, meaning “to keep or remember.” A video presentation illustrates the daily life of Amish and Mennonite people today. A restored 1856 one-room public school house is now onsite, and an 1840s-style bankbarn houses a restored Conestoga Wagon that brought early settlers to Holmes County. BERLIN, THE VILLAGE OF Website – www.berlinohioinfo.com More Information – The Village of Berlin, located in eastern Holmes County, is undeniably one of the busiest places in the entire “Ohio Amish Country” area. Holmes County – along with its surrounding counties – is home to the largest settlement of Amish people in the world, with Berlin as the center of the settlement. As interest in the lifestyle of the Amish has grown in recent years, Berlin has grown commercially. Its streets are lined with craft shops and other stores offering everything from handmade wooden furniture to whimsical Amish dolls and handmade crafts of all varieties. New bed-and-breakfasts, inns and other lodging facilities have sprung up, while a variety of restaurants offer traditional Amish-style cooking. Before the Amish became Berlin’s main attraction, it was known for being the first village formed in Holmes County and the home of the first factory in the county, the Braden and Hassock Farm Implement and Iron Company. In 1811, Berlin’s earliest settlers were John Swigert and Samuel Knight, who brought their families from Maryland. Swigert selected a spot on his land for a town and named it Berlin – after his hometown in Germany. He platted 108 lots, with the deed dated Feb. 18, 1816. Today Berlin is best known for its tourist attractions – from the unique gift galleries and craft shops to hotels and restaurants. The wide variety of activities and shops will make any traveler’s visit to Berlin a memorable one.

THE GERMAN CULTURE MUSEUM Contact Information – 4877 Olde Pump St., Walnut Creek; (330) 893-2510, www.germanculturemuseum.com. Hours – May-Oct., Thursday-Saturday, Noon-4 p.m. Call for private tours or expanded hours. Admission – Donations are accepted. Amenities – The museum houses an impressive collection of area memorabilia, including a 14”X20” portrait of Holmes County’s first Amish settler, Jonas Stutzman. Also featured are displays of German and Swiss culture, including furniture, vehicles, tools, quilts, textiles, folk art and photographs. Guided tours are available with knowledgeable volunteer guides. History – The Walnut Creek area was originally settled by Amish pioneers from Somerset, Pa. In 1803, an exploring party surveyed the region and selected a location for settlement. A 21-year-old Amish man, Jonas Stutzman, arrived in the spring of 1809 and settled on land just southwest of the current town of Walnut Creek. He became the first permanent settler in Eastern Holmes County and is considered “The Father of Amish Country.” Since those early beginnings, Walnut Creek has experienced many changes, including a name change (it was originally called New Carlisle). But the common denominator has been the Amish and Mennonite residents, the descendents of those early pioneers who selected this area as their ideal home. Those original settlers brought with them the traditions, tools, equipment, culture and stories of the Old Country, Switzerland and Germany. The German Culture Museum seeks to be keeper of history in the township – displaying items and keeping record of happenings since the pioneer days. We are pleased to keep the old stories alive and pass on the appreciation of where we have been and ultimately, to see more clearly where we are going. It’s more than a collection of antiques, old photos and yellowed newspaper clippings – it’s a place where the foundation of the world’s largest Amish community can be inspected, studied and actually touched. When you visit Ohio’s Amish Country, don’t pass up the opportunity to visit our unique museum. We’re affiliated with the Amish and Mennonite Heritage Center in Berlin, home of the cyclorama “Behalt.” Painted by Hans Gaugel, “Behalt” describes the persecution of Mennonites and Amish in Europe, the exodus to the New “ATTRACTIONS” CONTINUES ON 12

The Planning Commission also works closely with the Holmes County Economic Development Council. Our county prides itself on having a pro-business, pro-growth strategy, all while ensuring development occurs in an orderly manner. Tourism is also a major industry and provides a considerable

source of tax revenue for the county. Evidence of the strong economic climate in Holmes County is demonstrated by examining the statewide unemployment rates showing Holmes County to be consistently one of the lowest communities in the State at 3.4 percent (as of August 2014), and also, the eighthfastest population growth rate in the state. Obviously, there are multiple factors driving the economy in Holmes County, but there remains a significant desire to preserve the rural character so visitors will continue to return. Issues such as the proliferation of subdivisions, destruction of farmland and rising real-estate taxes will come into play in the near future.

LEADERSHIP HOLMES COUNTY PREPARES NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS

Contact Information - 6 W. Jackson St., Suite A, Millersburg; (330) 674-3975, www.holmescountychamber.com (click on the Leadership link). More Information - In Holmes County, leadership and learning go hand-in-hand. In its fourteenth year, Leadership Holmes County was designed to develop leadership skills in a wide range of individuals throughout the county. The program also seeks to increase the number of leaders in business, the community and government, while educating them about Holmes County’s resources, challenges and opportunities. “We’re never too old to learn and sort out new ideas. You’re always involved in leadership situations, whether you’re 5 or 95,” said Leah Miller, who facilitates Leadership Holmes County. Areas of Concentration – In addition to studying “Developing the Leader Within You” by John C. Maxwell, and other leadership resources, the class concentrates on one area of Holmes County each month: * Culture, History and Geography * Local County Government * Non-Profit and Education * Medical Services * Entrepreneurship

* Manufacturing * Tourism * Agriculture Class Selection and Procedures - Each year, a class of 15 to 25 people is selected from the group of countywide applicants. Classes run from September to May and meet once a month. The class spends each morning studying Maxwell’s text, other leadership publications and participating in group discussion. In the afternoon, they travel throughout the county visiting leaders where they work. Miller hopes the leadership students use the opportunity to really sit down, talk to the key players and discuss leadership philosophy and involvement in the community. “We want to heighten awareness. There are opportunities in our county, and we have some challenges out there that need someone to step up to the plate and not just people in business or in public positions,” Miller said. The program also has the benefit of preparing a leadership base for Holmes County to meet the demands of the various boards in the community. Leadership Holmes County is sponsored by the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau.

POMERENE HOSPITAL Contact Information - 981 Wooster Rd., Millersburg; (330) 674-1015, www.pomerenehospital.org, www.facebook.com/ PomereneHospital CEO Administrator - Tony Snyder Number of Beds - 55 Number of Staff- Over 30 active medical staff physicians, 300 employees plus 80 volunteers Services - Ambulatory Care, Cardiology Services, Community Outreach, Dietetic Nutrition Counseling Program, a Wide Variety of Services for the Amish, Emergency Care, Express Care, Family Care, Laboratory, Intensive Care Nursing, Maternity/OB, Midwifery Services, Medical/Surgical Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Orthopedic Surgery, Physical Therapy, Radiology, Rehabilitative Services, Respiratory Care, Sleep Lab, Social Services, Speech Therapy, Surgical Services, Volunteer Program, Fitness and Wellness Center.

CARING FOR OUR COMMUNITY’S HEALTH COMMUNITY OUTREACH The Joel Pomerene Hospital Company was established in 1919 as a not-for-profit corporation with the goal of building a hospital in Holmes County. County taxpayers later passed a 1.5-mil levy to supplement the money donated by the Pomerene family and build the Joel Pomerene Memorial Hospital, which opened its doors on June 1, 1937, as a county hospital. The original facility started with a six bed women’s ward, a three bed men’s ward, six private rooms, a three bed OB ward and a nursery with 5 cribs. There were 10 physicians on staff. Today we have more than 300 employees and 80 physicians. After several major renovation and expansion projects, the hospital has 3 floors and more than 30 departments. Pomerene is one of the largest employers in Holmes County and serves the greater Holmes County area with some patients residing in contiguous counties. Pomerene Hospital’s mission is “Caring for our community’s health.” We are located in the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country. Amish patients make up nearly 50% of our customers, and we see more Amish patients than any other hospital in the world. In 2015, physician services grew when Pomerene added two new providers to Pomerene Family Care, welcomed a new certified nurse midwife, a podiatrist, and new general surgeon. Pomerene also continued its focus on population health, encouraging the community to take control of their health and wellness and join Pomerene Kinetics, a medical fitness center that focuses on the overall health and wellbeing of each individual that participates in the program.

Page 34

Above: new general surgeon, Dr. Michael Schell with surgical staff In addition to new physicians and new services, Pomerene also received several awards in 2015, particularly focused on patient safety and healthy work environments. In the spring of 2015, Pomerene Hospital was honored with an “A” grade by the Leapfrog Group, an independent industry watchdog. The safety score rates how well hospitals protect patients from errors, injuries and infections. It was the fourth time Pomerene has been awarded an “A”. In the summer of 2015, Pomerene Hospital announced it achieved Pathway to Excellence© designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The Pathway to Excellence designation identifies the elements of work environments where employees can flourish. The designation substantiates the professional satisfaction of employees at Pomerene and identifies it as one of the best places to work. Many studies show a correlation between a positive work environment and patient safety, patient satisfaction and quality. Pomerene is currently only 1 of 6 hospitals in Ohio and 1 of 132 worldwide to receive this designation. As always, the hospital offers community outreach programs serving as a medical resource of information on health topics important to our community. For more information regarding the community outreach events, please call 330-674-1584, ext. 1764. Whether you are a visitor to our area or a long-time resident of the county, you’ll find the staff at Pomerene Hospital can take care of your medical needs with skill and compassion. The facility offers full medical services through a team of highly trained medical and nursing professionals. When patients and their families have come to Pomerene, they have always been impressed with the attentiveness shown by staff, the high level of compassion exhibited by the nurses, and the skill of our physicians. COMMUNITY OUTREACH • Community Screenings on the 1st Tuesday of each month located in Mt. Hope at the Mt. Hope Medical Center, and the 3rd Wednesday of every month at Keim Lumber in Charm.
