In August I visited friends in Ohio and their area is also Amish country. We visited Behalt, an Amish & Mennonite Heritage Center, and I got to speak German with an Amish man.

I got to speak German with an Amish man!!!

I also learned that:

  • most people have no clue about the Amish and Mennonite people.
  • most of what we (think we) know about the Amish and Mennonite is incorrect.
  • the Amish speak no Dutch!
  • they're also not from Pennsylvania.
  • they don't all speak Pfälzisch. Really!

It did my heart and soul a lot of good to speak German with a native speaker again. I hope you enjoy hearing about it.

Visit Behalt:

behalten: to keep, to preserve, to maintain
