Getaway in Ohio's Amish Country
An Amish home
Yoder children--Kayla, 7, Anthony, 6, and Kara, 4--swing on the porch at Yoder's Amish Home.
Plunk down $11 for a tour and buggy ride, and Verba Miller, a friend of the Yoder family, will take you through a farmhouse filled with authentic furniture and clothes. In each room, Verba explains the rituals: how Amish families practice their religion, how girls' clothes change as they become women, how families work and play together. Visitors stroll through the 1885-built red barn filled with animals before climbing aboard a buggy for a turn around the farmstead.
