Amish Country near Arcola, IL

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The city of Arcola was founded in 1855. In the countryside near Arcola is a prominent community of Old Order Amish, the largest in Illinois.

There is an Old Order Amish Museum opened in 1996 and features exhibits on most aspects of Amish life, as well as an introductory video about the Central Illinois Amish.

I only got of the highway to get lunch. I was just lucky to see this carriage. I have never seen one totally enclosed one. In Canada the Mennonites carriages are usually open.
