Do Amish live near Portland?
As of late 2013, Amish do not live in the Portland area, nor anywhere in the state of Oregon (nor, for that matter, in any Pacific Coast state). The nearest Amish communities to Portland can be found in Montana, where Amish have lived since the 1970s, and in Idaho, site of a new Amish settlement.
Oregon has seen periods of Amish settlement, however, dating back to the late 1800s, when Amish could be found in a pair of locations south of Portland (McMinnville in Yamhill County, and Needy in Clackamas County). A second community later existed in the vicinity of the first McMinnville settlement, lasting until 1961 (see The Amish in America: Settlements That Failed 1840-1960 by David Luthy for more).
Buying Amish furniture in Portland
Since Oregon lies so far from Amish settlement, most prospective buyers of Amish-made furniture are going to do so via a retailer, who may maintain a relationship with a handful of Amish manufacturers, or sometimes dozens. Through this connection, Portland residents can acquire Amish furniture either by purchasing pieces on display in a showroom, or by ordering custom-made furniture.
As the Amish furniture industry has developed over multiple decades, Amish producers have become more flexible and able to respond to changing tastes and trends, offering both current styles as well as providing classic modes of furniture. Furniture styles which Amish produce include but are not limited to:
- Queen Anne
- French Country
- Arts and Crafts
Many retailers offer multiple options for customization, and in fact many Amish-made pieces are tailored to customer specifications. Options for custom Amish furniture cover, among others:
- Wood species
- Furniture hardware
- Stain/dye/paint color
Custom work of course takes time, and though businesses will vary, delivery times can range anywhere from 6-12 weeks or more from order. Using a local Portland Amish furniture dealer will simplify the process and allow you to view furniture styles and materials firsthand.
Alternatively, some furniture buyers prefer to look online, where many internet-based Amish furniture dealers can be found. Most offer shipping to Portland and other parts of Oregon, making buying Amish furniture online a viable alternative. A final, but more time-consuming option is to visit an Amish community in search of furniture. Some Amish manufacturers do produce their goods for retail buyers, though many prefer to sell via a 3rd party.
