    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
