New On My Web Site: Amish World – Intercourse, PA

The Amish are a religious group that has its beginnings in one of the Anabaptist groups that started in 16th Century in Swiss.

They wear traditional clothing; men wear hats and long beards and women have covered heads and long skirts…

New On My Web Site: Oatman, AZ
