Welcome to Kalona 
What To See    Interacting with the Amish
What to Do   Amish Boy   Many Amish by their own rules do not interact with the outside world, and as such, appreciate not being approached and questioned by strangers about their lifestyle choices or religious beliefs.

Many Amish object to having their photographs taken, as they consider it against the mandate of the Bible to have no graven images. If you must photograph them, they would prefer you do so from the back so their faces are not shown, or you may photograph their buggies and horses.

Their buggies travel between 5 and 10 miles per hour, and while many of the main paved roads in the area have an extra lane on the outside to allow them safe passage, the secondary roads do not. Therefore if you travel on gravel or blacktop to visit the Amish stores, PLEASE drive slowly and stay to the right, especially as you approach the crest of hills.
