In a fascinating work of religious history and cultural inquiry, Hatfield brings to life the true story of a nineteenth-century farmer-spiritualist, Jonathan Koons, whom thousands traveled to Ohio to see. As heirs to the second Great Awakening, he and his followers were part of a larger, uniquely American moment that still marks the culture today.

While older adults in and around Amesville are among the more active users of the Village’s ½ mile of paths, Gifford park, exceptional recreational services and our community center, they also have their very own programs and services—the Amesville Senior Center.
You’ll be amazed when you read all that’s going on in the quarterly schedule posted to the Village Productions website. Euchre, digital photography, discussion groups, computer application classes—there’s something for absolutely everyone.
We invite you to experience the benefits of our creative programs and helpful services—including improved health, lower stress, new skills, greater independence and lasting friendships and memories. Hope to see you soon!
All programming takes places on the First Floor of the Village Productions building (see schedule on this website). Some key features of the center are:
Free wifi access
Coffee and breakfast
Books from the New Coonskin Library
Internet and computer assistance
Crafts, games and discussions
We're planning a tour to the Oak Barrel Plant in Jackson, Ohio for some time in 2019.
