Visiting Amish Country

When I arrived in Indiana, I realized my destination was near several Amish communities.  There are approximately 1,000 Amish families living in Daviess County, Indiana.

The Amish people in Daviess County operate several business, such as craft shops, furniture stores, fabric/quilt shops, and food stores.  They speak Dutch German as their first language and English as their second language.  The Amish population work hard to maintain their heritage and values of hard word, simplicity, and family relationships.

While I was there, I visited the Amish communities and shops.  I was also able to speak with a few of the Amish people.  I asked questions about their culture and belief system.  Everyone I spoke with was nice and willing to answer my questions.

I found the experience to be educational and thought provoking.
