Highland County, Ohio has really become a magnet for Amish residents over the past 10 years. In fact, I can envision Highland County sort of becoming a "Holmes County South" in Ohio. You just have such a huge Plain population growing there. Highland County is midway between Columbus and Cincinnati and pretty far off any highway, so it's rural, landlocked, insular, all ingredients Amish like. Highland County has some beauty too, I don't think anything can compete with Holmes County's rolling hills, but Highland does have a serene and scenic beauty.
Here is some of what I found in my latest romp through the county:
