Explore the surrounding countryside and the many Amish shops that surround our village. The horse-drawn Amish buggies and teams of horses plowing the fields are a common sight. Step back in time to a slower pace of life and relax or enjoy one of our many festivals. Arthur's Freedom Celebration, Moultrie-Douglas County Fair, The Great Pumpkin Patch, Arthur Cheese Festival, Chet Kingery Bluegrass Festival and Mennonite Relief Sale are just of few events held throughout the year.
Year Purchased: 1968
About the owner: Tanya Walker and Melodi Walker McKeighan invite you to enjoy and explore our hometown where "You're a Stranger Only Once"! We feel very fortunate to have grown up in small town America and enjoy the many amenities our village has to offer. You can walk or bike ride within minutes to the fair, fireworks, restaurants, schools, parks and downtown. You can also relax on the back patio or play pool or ping pong in our basement rec room. Built in 1951, we have called this "home" since 1968. It still retains it's beautiful woodwork, mid-century modern styling, arched doorways and many unique built-ins. Even though we don't currently live in Arthur, we come back many times throughout the year to visit friends, family and enjoy the festivals. It is and always will be "home"!
