    Thanks for the photo's

    Great photo’s of an interesting community.

    Q: Is the low water crossing a regular feature in that community, or is that something that only happens after heavy rainfall or maybe a snowmelt?

      Flooding due to snow melt.

    • There’s a pair of photos here of a buggy crossing a similarly flooded road in southern Indiana: http://amishamerica.com/an-unusual-cros/

      I forgot to add that these were taken a couple of weeks ago. Not sure what the weather has been like in the meantime but with the amount of snow that has fallen in Indiana might be a few roads looking like this as it warms up.

    Great pics!

    Greetings,

    Thanks for sharing the pics, they were great!! Very interesting with the water pumps. And I had forgotten about Amishville camping. Might be a place to take a vacation this year. :-)

    Blessings, Alice

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. My favorite was the one of butchering/rendering. I’ve been to the Adams County settlement a couple of times in the fall, but never in winter, so enjoyed looking at the winter scenes.

    Hitzer Stoves and Pumps

    Hitzer Stoves in Berne bought out Heller-Aller Pumps, and has been the manufacturer since 1995. Hence their popularity in the community.

      Interesting, thanks for sharing that information Paul. We are there once a month on business and I have seen many of those picture pumps in the houses. I didn’t realize hitzer was selling them.

    Whoa! That looks like a pretty steep “incline” for the handicapped ramp!

    I really like the photo of the brick schoolhouse converted to a house. Looks like it’ll stand forever! Sturdy!

    Thanks to the contributor (& Erik) for these interesting photos & comments/captions.

    Thanks for the pics. Regarding the fridge on the porch: I have a 31 cf upright freezer purchased in 1977. We removed the motor and have it in our barn to hold canned jars and other things we didn’t want to have freeze. it does pretty well, which is why we’ve moved it with us 5 times.

    The common drinking glass- I remember that from my childhood (my favorite part of church was when they passed the pitchers of water and a glass along the rows part way through the service- this was usually accompanied by trays of ‘church cookies’ and was primarily for the kids- my mom was among the ones that would not let us go out to play during the service so this was a major diversion for us!); however, as an adult, I was completely taken aback at small gathering at my aunt’s house when I got thirsty and my aunt handed me a glass someone else had just drunk out of. My reaction was immediate and followed by immediate embarrassment on both of our parts- I was embarrassed for having embarrassed her. She was very gracious about it and got me a clean glass and I was amazed to realize how much I’d actually forgotten.
    Converting an old school into living quarters sounds like a fun idea! Would love to see the inside!
