Interesting post at AmishAmerica linked below about the Amish of Andover, OH. We lived on the outskirts of Andover for about 5 years.  From the looks of the photos the author headed west on Rt. 6 and then north on Rt 7, through an area we refer to affectionately as Yoderville.

If you’re ever in the area make sure to check out the Barn Store in Cherry Valley.  We go there for sacks of wheat, oats, and semolina but they are really known in these parts for the Amish furniture.  Very busy place.  And yes, they have a web site.

Indicentally, when speaking about the concept of Retro-Culture, William S. Lind says the Amish are the model.  We tend to agree.
