Flat Rock, Illinois: During the course of working on Amish Cooks Across America, I had the pleasure to visit a myriad of Plain settlements across the USA. One of my favorite was the New Order Amish community of Flat Rock, Illinois. This is a small community about 15 minutes south of Robinson, Illinois, not far from Vincennes, Indiana. The community is quite welcoming and has a bit more of an evangelical bent than others. Watch this short video tour of Flat Rock.
These are some signs pointing the way to some of the Amish home-based businesses in the area, plus there is a neat little country grocery store called Villas. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area. This is one of the Biblical verse signs that are seen at the end of the driveway at the homes of some of the Flat Rock Amish. Definitely a more evangelical tone than you see in most Amish communities. This is not a judgement on part, just an observation.
