Photos from Ohio and Missouri.  First, Marcia shares a few photos of Highland County, Ohio.  As some readers have pointed out, some or all of these pictures are likely of Stauffer Mennonites residing in the county.

There are apparently two Old Order Amish settlements, founded in the last few years, with members residing in Highland County, but going by the looks of the buggy as well as the equipment you can barely see by the barn in the above photo, these are more likely of the Stauffer group (the hatted, beardless men in the auction photo of course are not Amish).





And Michelle sends a photo of transportation in a Missouri Amish community.  I thought the orange warning flag was interesting.

Missouri amish

I’d seen these used by Amish before, for example on the back of an electric scooter-wheelchair, but never on a carriage.
