    Interesting! I am quite familiar with the Amish settlements in Southern Maryland. Growing up in the area in the 60s, they always fascinated me. I remember my uncle hiring an Amish crew to build a tobacco barn on his farm. He always raved at their skill, speed and courtesy. I remember my aunt preparing a fried chicken lunch for them.

    Very interesting post. Love the picture of the house and clothes drying on the clothesline.

    I didn’t realize there was an Amish community in Mechanicsville. Have they been there long? I grew up in Western Maryland where there are Amish and Mennonite in the area and just over the state line in PA.

    I believe that the St. Mary’s County settlements have been there since the 1930s when Amish families left Pennsylvania. Check out:

  • I have 1940 as the start date for the Amish settlement, so it has been there awhile. Am not sure on the Mennonites. I will have a full post on the Mechanicsville MD settlement up soon.
