Amish Country

Millers Buggy Shop in Holmes County is the place to go for buggy sales and repair.

A front view of the shop suggests it might need some repair.
Slow moving buggys use the same roads as cars and extra caution is needed when driving in Amish country.

What wonderful pitures. Almost like stepping back in time. This is an area I would love to visit.
Enjoy your day.

Looking at that buggy shop photo, I felt like I'd gone back in time. Great photos of a unique way of life!

I love these shots. I spent my high school years in an area of Northern Indiana that had a large Amish population, and these really take me back. Kathy

That's interesting, that horse must be a Standardbred Pacer, probably retired from the track.

Amazing life style...I visited Amish country in central Illinois many years ago...we stopped to buy their apple butter...YUM! Your photos are very nice...and, I will remember that buggy repair shop, just in case!

Fascinating picture. It looks like the buggy shop building with the metal roof is a newer add-on. I would love to know the age of the older building next to it.

Interesting impressions from Amish country! I remember seeing a movie in the cinemas nearly 30 years ago about Amish people. I liked their attitude towards life, although I felt that some aspects were problematic, especially for younger members of the community.

Whenever I see something on the Amish I am always so amazed with the fact that there are people out there who can live like this. I would love to be able to visit such an area one day, but for now this will have to do.

I mst be vry old fashioned but I truly love the grace of living with nature of the Amish people. Everything is so well kept and their horses always look so well groomed. It takes me bah to the distant past of my childhood particularly since your photos are so very good.
