Amana Colonies

Amana Villiage Street Scene

Date: circa 1900

Subject: Amana Colonies

Photographer: unknown
Notes: Often used, this is still a great photo and really says a lot. Unfortunately, people often use this as proof there were Amish in Amana. This couldn't be further from the truth, especially if you consider the Amish taboo on photography.
