    CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES
    April 4- May 13, 2012
    The church basement kitchen throughout much of America is often the heart and soul of any church. In Church Basement Ladies we meet the pastor, three kitchen cooks and one daughter who run the kitchen and care for the congregation by preparing and serving the food

    PLAIN AND FANCY
    May 15 – October 13, 2012
    A New Yorker and his sophisticated girlfriend drive down around Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to sell a piece of property. Here they meet the Amish folk, whose convoluted English speech, clothes and habits haven’t changed for centuries

    Great Place to learn about the Amish way of life and to visit a Amish Farm (museum). Amish Acres has restored the Stahly-Nissley-Kuhns farmstead. It is listed in The National Register of Historic Places. Widow Barbara Stahly and her five sons migrated from Germany to the southwest corner of Elkhart County, in 1839.

    After our visit to Amish Acres we decided to walk around town a bit, since we wanted to get a few more pictures of the area. Sue also got some shopping in as we stopped in one of the antique stores where Sue found a McDonalds' plate the depicted scenes of McDonald's from the 60's and 70's when we would frequent it as high school and college students.

    The other pictures and a brief description as follows:

    Picture #1 - The Post Office had a very original totem type sign that was carved from a tree that had been standing there, but probably had sustained some damage at one time.

    Picture #2 - The Movie Theatre with showings on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. As I was taking this picture I met the owner's wife who mentioned the cooled air sign was an original from the 1930's.

    Picture #3 - An old Bank Building (not sure what is in there now), but liked the shoe sign on the side of the building and the alarm box on the top left side.

    Picture #4 - One of the houses on a side street. Sue took the picture while I bought 2 glasses of lemonade for 25 cents each across the street from 2 girls who showed us their new puppy.

    Picture #5 - The Amish are know for quilt making and these representations were on the side of a building as we entered the downtown area.

    This origianl barn was built over 100 years ago and dismantled and relocated to the historic farm. The atmosphere is warm and cozy with natural lighting coming through the numerous windows facing the orchard. Lots of space for kids. Extraordinary value in the set price of $14.95 for all you care to eat including dessert and beverage!

    Favorite Dish: The menu is served family style - all you care to eat. The warm homemade hearth bread with locally made apple butter is delicious. But so are the green beans, sage dressing and egg noodles with beef. You choose two of four meat selections - turkey, ham, chicken, beef.

    It's always interesting to find out about little tidbits of information about a town you are in. Here was a sign with information on both sides about the cartoonists who where originally from the Nappannee area.

    Amish Scene on a Street Lamp

    As this is an Amish Community one needs to be mindful of the numerous families traveling in Horse and Buggies on the roads going abou their daily business. Although this community isn't as strict as other Amish Communities I've been in (saw a group of 4 Amish ladies pull up behind me in a mini-van while I was parked and head toward the corner speciality coffee shop) there are still a fair number that abide by the older forms of transportation including bikes carrying their groceries.

    The Amish don't believe in having their picture taken, so respect their wishes and try not to photograph them.

    If you want you can take a picture of the Amish light post like I did with this picture.
