    You reminded me with this article — I grew up in eastern South Dakota. We had people that my mother told us were the “Russian Colony”. The ladies wore white bonnets and black dresses. Do you know who these people really were? Were they Amish or Mennonite or ??? I haven’t thought of them in years until I read your article. We left South Dakota when I was 15.

      Hi, Judi – Welcome to amish365! Those were Russian colony (not sure why the “colony” is there, they didn’t really live in colonies) Mennonites, there is still a Russian Mennonite presence in the Dakotas…Kevin

    Kevin, you should visit Muddy Pond and Allen County Kentucky as well. I live just north of Nashville and make regular visits to Allen County to shop at the two Amish stores there and also to buy veggies from the farmers. I’ve also been to Muddy Pond. The people from both places are awesome

    I highly recommend visiting Caneyville. Here is a little background info for those who don’t know:

    For those who can’t go, or until you are able, try their bi-monthly magazine Plain Things. It costs $12/year.
    For subscriptions, write: Plain Things, 1000 Choncie Lee, Caneyville KY 42721.

    Blessings!
