Sheesh. It didn’t take long. Literally within minutes of me posting the photo, Amy Peggans-Cyzick correctly identified the photo (Amy, if you are reading this email me at kwilliams@oasisnewsfeatures if you’d like to claim your free copy of the Williams Guide to Amish Country). I thought someone would guess it, but not that fast! And then others from her town began chiming in with the correct answer. Where is the above photo taken?
Heck, see that bay window on the right? The man who works there even posted on our Amish365.com Facebook page identifying the spot.
” I sit in that bay window up there on the left and see people take this picture 50 times a day,” wrote Abe Halterman.
On Facebook many people were guessing Shipshewana but, no, this is Dayton, Virginia, home to a community of Old Order Mennonites.
So, my parents were moseying through Mennonite country on their way to Richmond, Virginia. I love the Dayton community and would go back a gazillion times if I could. You can check out a past visit to Dayton that I made here.
