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.
