A full one-third of Delaware’s counties have Amish settlements.
Okay, Delaware only has three counties (yep, that kind of sounds like a joke you’d hear an Amish guy make).
Delaware’s sole Amish settlement nestles against state capital Dover. Amish have been here almost 100 years.
It’s a decent-sized community, actually: 9 church districts, over 1000 people. Amish have been leaving though. Land is expensive next to the capital.
Still, it’s still not as busy a place as, say Lancaster County. I think you can get a sense of that in the photos below. Amish I talked to last February suggested they’d be here a while yet.
Hope you enjoy these 10 photos of the Dover Amish:
