Amish Country

We've been visiting Holmes County, Ohio. This area is one of the largest groupings of the Amish and conservative Mennonite peoples. It is an area of gorgeous, rolling hills. Farming country.

The people express their religious beliefs in the way that they eschew the modern conveniences that most of us would consider essential. They utilize the tools and live the lifestyles that were common to our grandparents and great-grandparents in their youth of the 1870's to 1890's. At the same time our "english" culture exists in their midst.
