The Amish Farm & House Tour - Lancaster, PA

Updated: Jan 13, 2022

We started with a tour of an Amish House. The tour guide explained each room and about the Amish lifestyle. Did you know that women’s dresses are not stitched together but held together by straight pins? We were told that women cannot wear buttons, thus the straight pins.

We then loaded into a van and drove around the countryside while the tour guide explained which were Amish houses and more information about their lifestyle. Did you know that Amish cannot have phones in their house but some do have a phone box that sort of looks like an outhouse located close to the road that they can use? The rationale is that if the phone is not located within the house it won’t interfere with family life.
