Here are three photos of Amish Homesteads in Stone Arabia, Montgomery County, NY. You'll notice that there is no electrical wiring from a utility pole to any of the homes shown. Also, note the clothes hanging outdoors (no driers.) And if you look closely, you can see an outhouse or two, due to no indoor plumbing. The appearance of the homes and barns are truly 'plain.' No wreaths on doors, flags or seasonal banners. The only adornments are what nature provides, such as the changing colors of the fields each season, and the grazing cows and horses. Those in this community are of a conservative sect of Old Order Amish.
