North Carolina’s Only Amish Community, Union Grove Is A Sleepy Little Place But Still Worth A Visit
It may come as a surprise that North Carolina is currently home to only one Amish community. In the past hundred years, two others have attempted to settle, but to no avail. And in 1985, some Amish from the New Order in Guthrie, Kentucky, settled in along a small swath of land adjacent to Interstate 77, establishing a new community that has survived here for 36 years. The population of Union Grove, in general, is not high – and not all of those who live here are Amish.
