This Tiny, Isolated Kansas Village Is One Of The Last Of Its Kind

Kansas is full of lovely small towns that each offer their own charm and people. However, many are so popular that they don’t seem so small when you visit — because of all the other visitors. Hidden near other small towns, Kansas has a few Amish communities that are left off of most people’s maps. This particular one in Eastern Kansas is a Kansas village like no other.

Wouldn’t it be nice to live off the land for a little while? Even though this community uses tractors and other similar technology, you won’t find them dressing or behaving like your average Kansan. Maybe that’s the secret to happiness? Simple living at its best.

Speaking of Amish communities, you’ve got to try the pies at Carriage Crossing in Yoder, an Amish-run restaurant that also makes cinnamon rolls the size of your face.
