    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?

      Hotels

      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?

      Gender and Culture Class Visit

      Hi!

      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!

    Wagon Wheels

    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!!

      Directions

      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.

      horse training

      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.

    Horse and Buggy Brethren in Missisippi

    The Old Order German Baptist Brethren (horse and buggy) started a settlement at Hot Coffee MS, but it failed. The William Diehl family is the only one left there, as far as I know. See: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/0501/feature6/multimedia/multimedia.html

      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.

    Weekend Visit

    Hi,

    I am planning a visit for this weekend but I don’t see directions to the settlement. What is the easiest route to take from the Jackson-Metro area? I was thinking of taking the Natchez Trace.

    Thanks!
