Halifax County on the NC/VA border in southern Virginia is home to a tiny Amish community. On my recent Amish trip I paid a brief visit.
The Halifax County community was founded in 2005, and is a single church district in size. There are probably no more than a dozen Amish homes if that many. The center seems to be a rural “intersection” or really just a fork in the road, with the school and many of the homes clustered nearby.
As in many other communities, Amish here operate a variety of businesses. Halifax County is well off the beaten path, but the folks here seem to be getting by pretty well.
