                           of this region is Holmes County with an exceptional concentration of Amish families. Also part of this area are
                           Mennonites. Both groups share a common history and a strong commitment to the Christian faith. To better
                           understand the faith and practice of these unique peoples, visit the attractions included in this tour. All are owned
                           or operated by Amish or Mennonites. In addition to offering interesting and unusual venues, they provide a flavor
