amish auction

Richard and Susie Pletcher sign paperwork Wednesday following the sale of Amish Acres, a tourism attraction in Nappanee they developed over the past 50 years. 

NAPPANEE -- Key parts of the Amish Acres resort were sold to farmer and politician Marlin Stutzman and his partners in an auction Wednesday night for $1.55 million.

He and business partner John Kruse of Auburn purchased the Round Barn Theatre, a 400-seat restaurant and other buildings, and grounds that host the annual weeklong Arts and Crafts Festival during a sale that drew about 100 bidders and observers.
