The Amish Red Barn features original Amish handmade furniture, crafts and artwork from Pennsylvania and Ohio. The many items found here include handmade quilts, rocking horses, mailboxes, children's wagons, handpainted wood decorative items and one of the area's largest selection of Hex signs. Furniture handmade of solid oak, hickory and oak and solid cherry is also available. Inventory includes single and double gliders, rockers, dining tables and chairs, side tables, benches and saddle stools. Many other furniture items are available by special order.
The owner, Charles Timko, is a native of Pennsylvania and lived and worked among the Amish community for forty years. Contacts developed with Amish craftsmen provide him with access to authentic Amish made items not available to the general public. He insists on verifying that items are Amish-made before offering any merchandise for sale.
Located 6 miles east of Helen and and 8 mile north of Clarkesville on Highway 17, The Amish Red Barn is housed in an 1899 farmhouse purchased by Charles in 1997. Charles restored the house prior to opening the store in 1998. To complete the farm, Charles built a red barn with a silo next to the house and name the store The Amish Red Barn.
A recent addition to The Amish Red Barn's offerings is a line of high quality gazebos. Delivery and set-up is included within a 25 mile radius of the store.
Cheesecakes made by special order upon request.
The Amish Red Barn is open year round on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from Noon - 3PM, and other times by appointment only.
