    It’s a telephone booth. Doesn’t everyone have a phone in the throne room?

    I think I agree with Margie & that it is a community place for freezers.

    Is this even Amish owned? At the top of the pole with wires it looks like a small security camera, the type you see in parking lots etc. I’m baffled!!!

      Linda, good observation about the security camera! I just updated the post to tell what is in the building. Margie and Barb were correct!

    Interesting, I don’t see my post here. No matter, I was close, but no cigar.

    “They draw a clear distinction between owning and using a technology.” This is an interesting point, one I sort of knew, but didn’t really consider. I imagine this mindset is also helpful to keep folks from being so materialistic too.

    When had uncle who had a diary farm they had Amish working for them. But for things like milkers my uncle and cousins had to plug them in and then the Amish would do the rest.But at that time the Amish did not plug things into outlets.

    In the back of this building there used to be an accounting office which was used for a wholesale company that used to be owned by the Amish. I know I worked there.

      Linda, are you certain? If you are referring to Shetler’s, that is a mile or so away….
