Christian Homestead, Inc., began in 1994, near Shreve, Ohio, with the loving work of my husband Rex, and myself, Diane. We built our "brick and mortar" store on land that has been in the Dye family for over 150 years. Hence, our name, "Christian Homestead" as the land was first homesteaded, turning into a fine family farm over the years, and as our family has been Christ-oriented for over 5 generations.
We humbly began as a Christian Bookstore, offering Sunday School curriculum and Christian Education materials, as well as Bibles, books and other items. We added our Homeschool Resource Center in 1996, as we began to see the impact homeschooling had (and still has) upon our grandchildren. We saw the need for a store that could offer homeschool curriculum and materials for previewing, as well as purchase. Thus we opened the Resource Center, which offers daily cost savings in order to help homeschooling families stretch their curriculum budget.
This site acts as our online store, taking our offerings far beyond the walls of Holmes County, Ohio. We hope you enjoy your shopping visit with us and we encourage you to call or e-mail us if you have any questions regarding any of our items.
We recently relocated the bookstore to Orrville Ohio. If you ever find yourself in the area, be sure to stop by our storefront and introduce yourself!! We enjoy meeting our customers in person, putting names to faces and starting lasting friendships!
We are located in downtown Orrville at 133 North Main Street, Orrville, Ohio, 44667-- diagonally across from a local favorite The Fatihful Little Cupcake and next to Expert T's and Audry's Attic.
Co-Owners and Founders,
In His Name~
