Around 50 Amish families are moving to start a new settlement in southern Illinois, and the natives seem pleased.
The group is moving to Saline County from the Cashton, Wisconsin Amish community.
Local Salinites look forward to having ‘good, safe neighbors’ as well as the boost to the economy they will likely experience.
They’ve even donated a camper for one family as they construct a new home.
I think I’d be happy too if Amish came to town. A bit of horse poop and buggy traffic isn’t too much to put up with.
