If you’d like a glimpse of Amish areas in the Empire State, newyorkupstate.com has posted 14 photos taken in Western New York.

The article references Chautauqua County, which is home to several Amish communities, including the settlement at Clymer (10 church districts as of 2017).

However, at least some of these photos may in fact be from neighboring Cattaraugus County, which includes the town of Leon, noted in a couple of the photos.




Cattaraugus County is where you’ll find the Conewango Valley settlement, the state’s oldest and largest (or at least the bulk of it).

Most of the photos are of the countryside, which is stunningly beautiful. The area is marketed to visitors as “New York’s Amish Trail”.
