Another 10 views of Holmes County, Ohio

This is another installment in the 10 views series, featuring photos from my recent visit to the Holmes County, Ohio Amish community.   I’ve included a few comments and links to relevant posts that you might enjoy.

Sugarcreek Amish
Sugarcreek is technically in Tuscarawas County.  It’s often the first little town visitors to the area pass through.  Many of the buildings in Sugarcreek’s “Swiss Village” downtown area are meant to evoke Swiss-style chalets.  Read more on the pluses and minuses of Amish tourism.

      Another 10 pictures of Holmes County

      I really enjoy the pictures. There is some beautiful Amish farms there from these pictures.

      1. Helny

        Prettier than pictures show

        We just got back from a trip to Berlin Ohio…in Holmes. The views, esp. in this Fall season, are much more breathtaking than these photo shows. Awesome!!!!!

    2. Very nice “tour.” Good format, too.

      I opened this post right after arising in the morning. What a nice way to start the day. Thanks you.

      I am in Holmes County right now! Is that farm just below Millersburg on CR 68? I am almost certain it is a friends parents place! The parents of the groom to the wedding I attended on Friday.
      Beautiful pictures!

      loved the photo of the farm with the pond. Not alot of farms today have their own pond. That must be a treat for the kids that live there to go swimming in the summer and for ice skating in the winter.

      Beautiful part of the country. Thanks Erik for posting these. As Bob said ” Perfect way to start the morning with this photo’s”

    9. Juanita Cook

      Love all these pictures of all these farms.

    10. Carolyn B

      My favorites were the Amish restaurant with the bench and a gorgeous ramp out front and the orange brick house with the volleyball net to the side. I’d like that home.

      Good job, Erik.

        Carolyn, that is actually a school! Doesn’t it look like a nice comfortable place to go for your school days? 🙂

        1. Carolyn B

          Thanks, Kerry

          Thanks for the info about that building being a school. A bookworm such as myself loves the coincidence that a school was my favorite building.

    11. The hardest part about these posts is deciding which shots to use. If I use the rapid fire function on my camera there is even more to sort through. Glad they were enjoyed.

    12. I am always so impressed with the lack of litter in the pictures. It seems that around the countryside where I live, there is litter everywhere you look.

      1. Florence, unfortunately, litter (and graffiti, which is just a more permanent form of litter) are fairly rampant in my town. Might be why these types of shots appeal to me too.

      I like the scenic view with the pond in photo #2. Photo #9 brings back memories of walking up the ramp to the restaurant. I was also impressed with the good information at the Amish America links you provided about tourism, bicycles, sports, and funerals, and how few comments some of those undated posts have. Yet you kept on writing, Erik, even if there weren’t very many comments. I wonder how many comments those posts would generate if written today?

      1. Good observation Linda, on the few comments. There’s probably one explanation why–those were actually published as “pages”. Not to bore anyone, but in WordPress, the blogging program I use, you have the option of creating either posts or pages (more or less the same, except that posts automatically appear at the top of the main page when you publish them, and pages are undated and just “appear” somewhere out there in the internet 🙂 ).

        I did a lot of those linked articles for the Amish Online Encyclopedia section a couple of years ago, and released them all one day in a massive burst (I think around 80 at one time). In hindsight, maybe should have drip-dripped them over time 🙂 When I get around to adding more to AOE that may be what I do.

        I think my favorite photo of this batch is #2, or, actually even the first one. I have always had a soft spot for kitsch…and I like the concept this 3-D buggy artist had in mind. It’s almost science-fictiony 🙂

      Love the pictures.thank you I enjoy looking at your site each morning.

      Tranquility has landed!

      Ahhh! How peaceful! I’m sure glad you printed these photos today, Erik. (I was raking & blowing leaves over the weekend, and I could use a break!)

      I’m interested in those rockers—they sure are hefty looking! I’ve seen the bent-wood versions (for indoors), but the two you’ve pictured here certainly seem sturdy/weatherproof enough to survive decades outdoors! How much do they weigh?

      The first photo shows how clever “advertising” can be! I LOVE 3-D effects (I used to do a lot of bulletin board displays, and always tried to use some 3-D element). Was it actually done by the Amish themselves? Just curious!

      Keep ’em coming—I can’t get enough of Amish area photos!
