Exploring Ohio's Edge of Appalachia
Adams County's Amish arrived in the 1970s. Some came to escape tourists in Holmes County, but others cater to visitors. Popular Amish businesses include Miller's bakery, furniture gallery and dry goods store. Miller's Bakery, one of the area's few true tourist attractions, features treats such as cream-filled coffee cake (left).
Miller's and another bakery-deli, Keim Family Market, advertise heavily, but most businesses remain hidden, as if no one quite realizes that in another place, these shops, covered bridges and historic homes would be big-time attractions.
