"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 cooperation with MetroParks of Butler County, is committed to the preservation and restoration of the Chrisholm Historical Farmstead. We desire to use this site to tell the story of the Amish Mennonite settlement and the importance of agriculture in this region.
