This is primarily an Amish community, and one with many unusual features. There is a giant auction/flea market that seems to attract lots of visitors, many brought in by tour buses. Accordingly there are numerous restaurants and touristy shops, not to mention plenty of Amish-run businesses, such as cabinet, furniture and quilt makers. All this is surrounded by huge farms, many of which are owned by Amish families.

Built in the 1920s, this was an Amish farm until 1997, when it was completely restored for use as a Bed & Breakfast. It seems to be highly rated, especially its Amish meals.

I don't know if this farm is owned by Amish, but it made an interesting foreground against a spectacular sunrise.

All the area farms seem to have lots of horses. Certainly, that is true of the Amish, who use horses to pull their buggies, and probably other chores. I liked this paint because it reminded me of some of the horses we saw in Lexington.
