Scenic Amish Drive

Search Blair Wisconsin

Travel back in time along the Scenic Amish Drive when horsepower was generated by oats and hay, light was generated by oil and kerosene, and children walked to school. Also, family travels began by hitching horses to buggies and sleighs, barns were built in a day and lasted for lifetimes, and the music of nature and quiet voices filled the peaceful country air.

Along this drive visitors can observe as farmers prepare their fields, seed, cultivate and harvest their crops using natural horsepower, 19th century implements and organic farming methods that produce rich and abundant yields. In summer, entire families can be seen weeding in the fields.

At harvest time, entire communities congregate to reap and enjoy the bounty of orchards and fields. Roadside stands offer freshly picked produce, and art gallery's offers works that capture the scene. Sturdy barns, ample homes, schoolhouses, meeting places and people are all encountered along the way.
