The Eicher Arts Center and Eicher Indian Museum and Education Center


One of the oldest standing structures in Ephrata


The two historic buildings are part of the 18th century estate of Daniel Eicher and his family. The structures border the Cocalico Creek in Ephrata Park and are located directly across from the Ephrata Cloister. The main buildding, the Eicher Arts Center, has provided a wide variety of cultural programs for citizens of Lancaster County. In recent years, this beautifully refurbished site has been utilized for all types of social gatherings (weddings, rehearsal dinners, showers, family and school reunions, birthday parties, as well as post-funeral celebrations.) In addition, business and organizations have used the buildings for meetings and programs.

The Eicher Arts Center is a non-profit organization and all programs are free to the public. They include music, fine arts, speakers and discussions.
