Do you have an Amish settlement near your home?

Are they horse and buggy or car?

  • I live in SE PA, where we have both Amish and Mennonites. The Mennonites drive cars, the Amish use horses & buggies. They are both "Pennsylvania Dutch," but they are not the same.

  • In Missouri the Amish still use horse and buggy. The Mennonites drive cars.

  • No. The closest would be in central Illinois, I think. We have Mennonites though.

  • I have Mennonite neighbors to the left of us and several Mennonite families in our area that are still left here since the church had a big split about 6 years ago. I love my Mennonite friends. They are special women and have taught me quite a bit about simplicity and love of family.
    I like to visit our Amish settlement in Lawrenceburg, TN. They are Old Order, so they still use horse and buggy and speak the German dialect as well as some English. Very kind, gentle, hard -working people. I plan to make another visit this summer. : )
