Inside A (Mostly Empty) Mississippi Amish Home (18 Photos)

Inside A (Mostly Empty) Mississippi Amish Home (18 Photos)

I don’t believe we’ve yet seen inside a Mississippi Amish home, so I couldn’t pass this one up. That’s in part because Mississippi has such a small Amish population – just one community of around 160-some people. For an Amish community in the Deep South, you wouldn’t expect to see a lot of icy precipitation. But when these photos were taken, the area (Pontotoc in…

Propane & Kerosene In Amish Homes: Is It Safe?

Propane & Kerosene In Amish Homes: Is It Safe?

When I do posts and videos showing the insides of Amish homes, often enough you’ll be able to see fuel sources such as propane tanks and kerosene, used for lighting, cooking and other purposes. People frequently wonder whether these sources of heat and light are safe. I asked Ben about this and he gives his answer in the video below. The types of fuel (and…

Inside A Small (1,028-Square-Foot) Amish Home (24 Photos)

Inside A Small (1,028-Square-Foot) Amish Home (24 Photos)

This is one of the smallest Amish homes we’ve looked at (but not the smallest).¬† The floor space is actually just a hair above 1K, at 1,028 square feet. What we most likely have here is a classic case: growing Amish family needs more room. This home is in Hancock, Wisconsin (Waushara County), home to an Amish community which has been around since the early…

One Year Later, Inside Another South Dakota Amish Home (18 Photos)

One Year Later, Inside Another South Dakota Amish Home (18 Photos)

Almost exactly one year ago it was reported the Amish were leaving¬†Tripp, South Dakota. The community had been around for over a decade, and represented the only Amish presence in the state at the time. I had found examples of Amish homes for sale at Tripp prior to this news coming out and speculated that the settlement was winding down. However, a year later it…

Inside A “Modern Country” Amish Home (14 Photos)

Inside A “Modern Country” Amish Home (14 Photos)

I’m calling this “modern country” because it is a more progressive Amish home – with a lot of the notes and decor you’ll see in non-Amish rural homes. This is the type of home that some people will take a glance at and say “that’s not Amish” – but in fact it is. In other words, quite different from the last Amish home we looked…

Inside A Plain And Simple Amish “Shop” Home (23 Photos)

Inside A Plain And Simple Amish “Shop” Home (23 Photos)

This is a pure Amish shop home if I ever saw one. From the outside it is very functional looking – unpainted metal siding. Inside there is a plain but (relatively) cozy Amish home. We are looking at an Amish community in Coldwater, Michigan, and obviously going by the season, these photos were taken at least half a year ago. This appears to be one…

Inside A Simple Amish Home – For Just $102,000 (15 Photos)

Inside A Simple Amish Home – For Just $102,000 (15 Photos)

This Amish home is found at Tionesta, Pennsylvania. I hadn’t heard of the town and really had no guess where in the state it might be. It turns out this community is in Forest County, in northwestern PA. And it is a well-established settlement – founded in 1972, with a total of three Amish churches today. Northwestern Pennsylvania is a region with numerous Amish settlements…

Tennessee Amish Farmhouse Museum For Sale (10 Photos)

Tennessee Amish Farmhouse Museum For Sale (10 Photos)

Something a little bit different today – not quite an Amish home, though it once was. While looking through Amish homes on Zillow, I came across this “Amish Heritage Farm Museum” for sale. This is in the Ethridge, Tennessee community. I recall driving past this place several times, though never stopped. Ethridge is not the largest community in the grand scheme of things – but…

A Colorado Amish Home With A Spectacular View (17 Photos)

A Colorado Amish Home With A Spectacular View (17 Photos)

So I came across this Colorado Amish home which sold back in 2021. There are several spectacular images of this home at the listing, and which you’ll see in this post. And as tends to be the case in some Western Amish settlements, there are progressive elements to this home as well (more on that below). The settlement is at Westcliffe, Colorado. The backdrop in…

Inside A Mint-Green Amish Home…For Under $100K (19 Photos)

This Amish home comes from one of Pennsylvania’s largest and most distinct Amish communities, that of New Wilmington on the western end of the state. We’ve actually seen a pair of homes from this settlement up for sale before, suggesting that “online” is a common-enough way to move your property if you’re Amish in this area. So the color I want to emphasize as we…
