The Amish In Upstate…Our New Neighbors!

I just got back from taking our 17-year old off to college in Canton, NY.  I was really amazed that once you reach a certain “imaginary line” the Amish seem to be everywhere.

There are many Amish communities in the north country (as well as in Otsego County).  Since about 1970 the Amish population has quadrupled to more than 13,000 in 2012.

They are good neighbors, hard workers, brilliant craftsmen (and women) and valued members of their communities.  I saw Pickens General Store in Heuvelton, NY (St. Lawrence County) and it was exactly what you would expect it to be!  What a neat place.  It really illuminated to me just how big and vast our Empire State really is!
