    Chouteau Amish

    I visited Chouteau last summer in order to research for my upcoming Plain & Simple Miracles series. They are very friendly folks. We were surprised to see all of the tractors the Amish youngie were driving to town. Folks told us that the buggies are for Sunday, weddings, and funerals.

    “I was chicken” — what a poultry excuse!! 😉

    Thanks Tom and Erik for the mini-tour.

    New growth

    Nice to see Amish “expansion” in the OK area. I guess if Chouteau has survived since 1910, there’s a reasonable chance the newer settlements might, also.

    I was a bit surprised to hear about the “commercial” (though Amish-run) chicken farms, and that those Amish don’t own their own homes. Now I’ll always wonder if I’m eating Amish-raised chicken!

    Thank you again, Tom & Erik.

      Temporary Amish settlements?

      There have been at least one or two Texas Amish communities which had this temporary type of character, with Amish working for local agricultural concerns and not owning their homes.

      The extinct settlement at Stephenville, Texas in the late 1980s was one. Amish there lived in mobile homes or small houses equipped with electricity. I didn’t know there were other settlements like this until I heard about this one from Tom.

    I live in Oklahoma, not too far from Clarita. I’ve been to the Amish auction for the last three years, it’s a lot of fun. I hadn’t heard of Westville before. Very interesting.
