      Name the Amish community #2 (November 4th, 2011 at 07:19)

      Name the Amish community #2

      YES, agree, a beautiful place to live!!!

      So, on naming the community—from the limited visits I’ve made to Amish country — I’m going to GUESS maybe, Paradise, PA, or Bird-in-Hand, PA???? And of course, the phone number on the last one didn’t help — no area code. Plus the 1st photo, the sign was not totally visiable, either (ha)….The 2nd photo, of corn field, reminded me of the corn maze, we saw in Paradise, PA. and the early morning fog, also, reminded me of Smoketown, PA, where we stayed.

      I give up, where are these photos taken?? Sharon R

    Is is Illinois?
    Isn’t is wonderful how neat and clean the Amish keep their properties? I love traveling around the US by car and the Amish communities always impress me. The are always so well kept.

    I have no idea where that is but it is beautiful. But seeing I am from New York, I will say that the picture is from my home state. Maybe upstate or over on the east lower east side of New York STate.

    3 different communities (November 4th, 2011 at 08:28)

    3 different communities

    Just to clarify–each photo is from a different community.

    And I’ve made sure there is a little clue in each shot :)

    Amish communities

    #1 has got to be Lancaster Cty. I have been past the sign on my back road rides besides the house and surroundings are just Lancaster.

    #2 I am also guessing Indiana somewhere.

    #3 I have no idea.

    Uh, open buggies with triangles (second photo)—my guess is Indiana.

    Others also seem to be in “flatlands”…firscould be Illinois (Arthur),and since I didn’t do a phone number search, I’d go with those who did and guess British columbia.

    All the right responses were mentioned but no one got all three in the same reply though some were pretty close (;

    1Nappanee IN-the clue here was the sign, with a B and the very beginning of a u–for Burkholder a characteristic Nappanee Amish name. Also appearance of the farmhouses

    2 Adams Co (Berne) IN-the open top buggies and the license plates were giveaways that this was probably one of the Indiana Swiss Amish settlements

    3 Dover DE-main clue here was the for sale sign. Many Amish moving away from Dover past few years which we’ve discussed on some Dover Amish posts this year

    In Canada Old Order Amish are only found in Ontario. There was an attempt to settle BC but didn’t work out.
