"The waters of the Great Miami River and its fertile valley were the elements that led six Amish families to settle in Butler County, Ohio, as they sought religious freedom in America."

"The Great Miami River which attracted Christian Augspurger to Butler County in 1819 still glides into the distance. It alone is unchanged."
The Amish Mennonite Settlement in Butler County, Ohio by Doris L. Page.

Friends of Chrisholm in partnership with MetroParks of Butler County act as stewards of the Chrisholm Historic Farmstead to promote the site to the general public by preserving and sharing the stories of our agricultural heritage and of the Amish Mennonite settlement of Butler County
