Amish Country

Several Amish families have moved to Parke County from Pennsylvania to retreat back to a more rural community.  The families have purchased many farms in the area.  Many families raise dairy cattle.  You may also see their horses and mules which are used as their means of transportation as well as the power for their farm equipment. The Amish do not use tractors or cars, nor do they have electricity in their homes.  They use gas for their lights, for the engines that run their milking equipment and to pump water.
