Time to play "guess where this photo was taken." Be the first to guess correct and you get...well, you get "bragging rights." There are a couple of hints that might allow you to narrow it down. I'll post the answer later this week, so be sure to click the "
I would guess one of the Swiss Amish districts but I wouldn't have clue which one.
Is this in Montgomery, IN?
Looks like county road 13 just north of bellefontaine off of 235.
Looks like a poorer community - Hardin county, Ohio?
Somewhere around Geneva, IN?
I would say these are Swartzentrubers related to the lack of any identifying features on the buggy and the women are wearing a lighter blue so I am going to guess somewhere in Kentucky where they are settling as the barns are that of old English farms.....
I would have said Adams County Indiana (Berne or Geneva). But the bright clothing on the females in the back ground isn't typical of that area. Plus the buggies in Adams County have the bright orange slow moving vehicle triangles on the back which are missing here. So I'm a bit stumped. Perhaps Michigan or Missouri.
Brent - Superb observations on your part! Stay tuned for the answer - Kevin
Somewhere around Marion?
Indiana, I meant to put. @Brent...I live around Adams county, (about 20 mins south) There are a lot of open top buggies here that refuse to put the sign on...but you're right about the dress color.
Hi Sarah. I grew up in Berne. You're right that there are some who don't use the orange triangles. However, there are a lot of buggies in this photo (perhaps a Sunday morning?) and not one of them have it. It also looks like buildings that were not originally built by Amish so it is likely some place they have moved into more recently. It could be in the south. I'm not as familiar with the Amish south of Indiana and Ohio. I'm eager to find the answer!
