Special thanks to James Anderson for providing the great photos for this entry.  I’ve been in log cabin homes owned by Amish, but this was the first time I’d ever seen an Amish log school.

Montana Amish have become known for log furniture, one of a number of industries they have taken up. Read more on Montana Amish furniture.
