Frolicking Through Amish Country

Frolicking Through Amish Country by JEB Spredemann

Okay, so I’m not sure if frolicking is the proper word—at least not in an Amish sense.

As most of you probably already know, I live in SE Indiana. I see Amish all the time, live next to them, shop in their dry goods stores, go to Amish schoolhouse dinners, etc. But, as a lover of Amish culture (and Amish fiction) I love to visit new places.

I’ve been to several Amish communities in our surrounding areas, but I’d never been up to Berne, Indiana. Since the one and only Beverly Lewis was going to be doing a book signing up in Berne, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to meet Mrs. Lewis and do a little sightseeing. ☺

Fortunately, we were there during an active time of the day so we were able to seeing the kinner leaving school for the day. We saw several school houses, a covered bridge, and other beautiful sites in Berne, Indiana Amish country. With that said, here are some pictures from my day trip with my daughter.

Have you ever been to Berne, Indiana? Do you have a favorite lesser-known Amish community that you enjoy visiting? I’d love to hear about it!

Thanks for reading and commenting.

  1. Amazing view into the moments that make up an Amish day. Thank you for sharing them. I wonder if the town was named Berne after the city in Switzerland.

    1. Yes, Amos! Love visiting new places. My guess would be that it was named after the Swiss town. The Amish here are Swiss, like some in my area. And according to Wikipedia, the Swiss Amish speak what’s called Bernese German.

  2. I love your pictures! I never know when you have a book come out. For some reason, I am always behind. Enjoy your writing!

  3. Beautiful pictures. I have been there. I met Beverly in Logansport Indiana I think same day. This is my 3rd time meeting her. Such a sweet lady. My husband says she has soft hands. :). Love the area.
