I am a big fan of Dr. Steven Nolt's work. You can read a bit more about my thoughts on him here. But for those who just want the basics:
I hope you'll join me on March 29 in hearing Dr. Nolt give a presentation to the Butler County Historical Society in Hamilton about a little-known and fascinating slice of Amish history:
Steven M. Nolt, professor of history at Goshen College, Indiana, and author of several well-acclaimed books about the Amish, will speak give a talk about the former Amish settlement at Woodsdale, Ohio. What is left of the settlement is preservd as part of the Chrisholm Historic Farmstead. We also have a video tour of Chrisholm posted here.
