Amish communities near Houston
Bee County, Texas’ only Amish settlement Did you know there is a small Amish settlement in Texas, just a three-hour drive away? Don’t expect the verdant green farmland you might be picturing in your head–better to go to Lancaster County if you’re looking for that.
The small Amish enclave near Beeville, in Bee County (1 hour north of Corpus Christi) has been there since the late 90s, when a group of Amish from Tennessee settled the region. The Amish settlement in Bee County is not booming. It is comprised of only a handful of households. There are a few businesses in this community, including a general store and buggy shop.
However don’t expect to find much furniture-making here. Other than rockers, there does not seem to be much commercial woodworking happening in the Bee County settlement. If you’re in the Houston vicinity and looking for Amish furniture, better to look in a Houston-area outlet (see guide above) or find an Amish furniture retailer elsewhere in Texas.
Benefits of Amish Furniture
While they may drive buggies, wear plain clothes, and speak a German dialect, the Amish are human like anyone else. However consumers have found the products they make appealing for a number of reasons. These include:
- quality materials
- variety of styles
- good value
- responsive service
- appreciation to detail and craftsmanship
- appeal of the traditional lifestyle of the Amish
While no consumer experience is perfect 100% of the time, Amish have enjoyed the benefits of consistently well-done work which has led to an overwhelmingly positive reputation for Amish-made products, and in particular their furniture.
For the Amish, pride is a cardinal sin. Taking pride in one’s work no doubt happens, though Amish caution one another against it. At the same time, doing well unto others is a universal rule all Amish try to live by, which it’s probably safe to say is reflected in the furniture they produce.
The Houston area provides an immense selection of furniture via both Amish and non-Amish dealers. Thanks to the reputation of their work, Amish furniture is likely to remain popular in Houston and elsewhere in Texas for a long time to come.
