Downtown Smicksburg Amish Country, a family owned business since 2006 is located in Smicksburg, Pennsylvania, a small borough that is nestled in the heart of Amish country.
Tucked away in a secluded section of Southwestern Pennsylvania is the borough of Smicksburg. Though small in size, this town has much to offer. Beautiful, country scenery, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, is just one of the attractions.
Smicksburg and the surrounding area is home to over 325 Old Order Amish families. These families still enjoy a life of simple living, shunning modern conveniences.
As you drive through the countryside, you will see rolling farmland along with the English and Amish homesteads. You may see an Amish man working his fields with his team of horses or Amish children playing in the yard of a one-room schoolhouse. Laundry blowing in the breeze and a horse and buggy traveling along the road are also common sights.
Along your journey through the peaceful countryside, you'll discover many quaint shops. Most are English owned but offer for sale the hand-crafted wares of the Amish as well as an extensive array of other fine products.
The people are hospitable and wave as you go by, but please be careful to respect their lifestyle. Please do not take pictures of the Amish, as this goes against their beliefs (the Second Commandment, Exodus 20:4 - "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image..."). Drive slowly through the area being courteous to Amish traveling in horse-drawn buggies or walking along the side of the road.
