amish in mississippi

A single Amish settlement is found in northeastern Mississippi

The Deep South is home to only one Amish settlement today, located near Randolph in Pontotoc County, Mississippi.  The Randolph Amish settlement is a conservative Swartzentruber community, marked by highly limited technology and a very plain lifestyle.

Historically, Amish have only occasionally settled in the Deep South region.  This would include a few other communities in Mississippi, as well as Alabama and Georgia.
