Two communities near the border of Indiana and Armstrong counties, northeast of Pittsburgh, are home to over 250 Old Order Amish families, the largest Amish settlement in Western Pennsylvania. Horse-drawn carriages and automobiles share the road, as you drive through the area. Specialty shops in town, mostly owned by the "English," offer a variety of hand-crafted goods and Amish wares. Small Amish-owned shops also offer home-baked foods and Amish-made furniture.
While in Dayton, take time to enjoy the Amish Wedding Feast at Stockdale's Restaurant, where you can enjoy an Amish meal, served family-style in a typical Amish setting, as you learn about traditional Amish wedding customs. In downtown Smicksburg, a variety of specialty shops offer everything from hand-made pottery and dried herbs, to hand-made Amish furniture.
