    Hotels nearby??

    Our church is planning a small group trip to the Amish community in Pontotoc, MS near the end of May. Are there any hotels nearby?

      It would be best for you to stay in tupelo- decent dining choices, good hotels and only about 25-30 minutes away. There is one small hotel in pontotoc and one in Houston. But if you get a hotel in tupelo near flea market area you will not be far from pontotoc.

          I’d consider staying in New Albany. It is only 15-20 from Pontotoc. Dining choices are fantastic, full of downtown shops, and home to the Tallahatchie Trails!http://www.visitnewalbany.com/

      not sure bout pontotoc but nearby tupelo has plenty

      From Hilton to the Super 8. Hilton is in historic downtown Tupelo near the Elvis Presley Museum añd other elvis landmarks. BestWestern is by the mall and in a central location of commercial Tupelo. Using hwy 6 to pontotoc takes 15 to 20 minutes ànd id suggest vissiting the Buffalo Park as you leave Tupelo. The Walmart in Pontotoc has a place to tye up horse buggiea. Very interesting culture.

      Carolyn if you mean the local Amish businesses, probably so as the Amish do not generally take off for Memorial Day. That may vary by settlement and employer but in this traditional settlement I’d expect that to be the case (though maybe someone local can confirm).

    Lodging near Randolph

    Cart Barn in is located in Bruce, Ms. This would give someone about a 30 min drive to the Amish Community. Reasonable priced, quaint, home owned, tranquil area.

    Field Trip

    I want to take a group of 15-20 high school students on a field trip to the Amish Community as part of a larger project exposing them to different ways of living. Is this an appropriate and acceptable practice?

      I am wanting to arrange a date to visit the Amish Community very soon. It would be a group of 14 including our instructor. We are a Master’s level program from the University of Southern Mississippi. Please let me know if this would be possible so I can relay the message back to my instructor. I look forward to hearing from you!

      Thanks so much!

    Hello! I’m trying to find two 20-24inch x 2inch spoke wagon wheels with a potential axle for a small cart (for rear side of cart). Can someone help me with purchasing something like this either in south Mississippi or in our state?? I used to live in TN and our Amish community crafted many different well built items but I don’t live there anymore! 🙁
    Feel free to email me!! Thanks a million in advance!!

      Google Randolph, Ms. Soloman Road. That is the community that most of the houses are on. It is about 10 miles from Pontotoc, Ms.
      I would travel 78 to New Albany, then 15 to Pontotoc, then hwy 9 south to Randolph. At Randolph, turn, left the cotton gin. That road will intersect with Soloman Road. There are houses all along the road from the cotton gin, then take a right.More houses thru there. No Sunday sales.

      I heard a while back that there are Amish in Mississippi that do wonderful horse driving training. I don’t know how to reach them to ask. I read on your post that you could possibly connect me to the right place/family? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

        Was there recently and there are two houses that sell wooden furniture there in the community. My daughter just had them make her a glider. I believe the name was Zook and he does good work. There is also a Mr. Miller whose furniture also looks good. They all seem to be nice hardworking people. We enjoyed our visits once we found them!

      Recent visit

      I took a recent trip in May to visit the Amish community, taking the time to visit a bit while shopping to get to know them. I had a great time hanging out in the shop and having basic conversation. i was so intrigued by the workmanship that i placed an order for a couple of peices of yard furniture and scheduled a return trip there just this past weekend. Great bunch of folk there.

    Amish Directions

    Was in Ponotoc area in September and could not find any reliable directions to Amish community. Can anyone refer me to a map? Would really like to visit but couldn’t believe the best direction was go down a dirt road and any of the side dirt roads led to farms! Help and thanks.

    Earlier this year I saved a Craigslist ad on a horse trainer in Randolph Mississippi I was hoping to use but the ad is no her there to be found ..it’s not there anymore
    The gentleman in the ad was from the Amish community or worked with them not sure .
    I came across this site looking for information on who it may have been and was hoping someone would beable to help me get in touch with a trainer for a horse .
    Not sure if someone from the community there would even have had an ad on Craigslist at one time but would love to find who it was
    Or someone that there that would be recommended
    Thanks for your time

    draft horses

    What do the Amish do when they are done with a work horse? Do they only use draft horses. Would they sell one. Do they breed them. Where do they get them from

    Comment on Visiting again (December 12th, 2017 at 22:31)

    Visiting again

    I have been once or twice a year since at least 2013 if not earlier. I try to take someone new along, someone I know will be interested & respectful. So far at least 4 people, family members for the most part and a couple of friends. When I plan to return at least one of them will jump at the chance to join.
    I took my grown daughter once and after looking over the furniture and returning to the car, I asked “so what did you think of the bee hives on the porch?”, she didn’t know what I was talking about! I said “go back”, the man must have heard us because he was laughing as we returned to the porch & began to show her the broken down hives and how they work & explained how he collects the honey. She didn’t want to go back as she was embarrassed but was thankful she did as she learned something new and was impressed with his skills!
    I am going backin a few days with a long time friend who has never been. We hope to get Christmas gifts for our loved ones, honey, sorghum, jellies, pickled beets, okra…ect
    I did ask a man who grew corn a couple years ago if his corn was GMO and he said that he did not know. That made me rather sad. Not sure if he even knows what GMO is.?

    Comment on Knew it wouldn’t be mainstream (December 12th, 2017 at 23:07)

    Knew it wouldn’t be mainstream

    Also I once took my young granddaughter to visit. She was wearing a tutu type skirt over leggings, and boy did those kids look her over! Lol
    It’s not just drive to the corner to find a gas station and she was in need of a restroom all of a sudden. I asked the lady we had just purchased a few items from if she might have a restroom the child could use. She said “yes, but she won’t be accustomed to it”. I said “if you don’t mind, I am sure she would prefer that to what will happen if she doesn’t use it”!
    She led us to a small room in what I would call a wood storage just outside the house. In that room was another room. Open the door and a bench with 3 toilet lids, 2 large and in the middle a smaller one with a block to step up to. I’d say a septic tank under.
    Granddaughter looked at the bench like “huh”? But in desperation she climbed the block and sat on the smaller middle seat. I looked for the toilet paper and only saw a phone book. They rip pages for that use! I now do that myself, but just for #1, why not save money & recycle? I put it in trash, not down the toilet. A jar was next to the phone book. I believe it was baking soda, for sanitizing the hands, as there was no sink or water.
    I would love to spend a day or a week or maybe even a lifetime with an Amish family.
    But I am “ English” and might not make it after these years of luxury? Yet I am Amish at ❤️ heart.
