First time in Shipshewana, IN and so glad that we decided to take the Blue Gate Amish Tour. 3 wonderful stops where we learned about woodworking, coffin making and what an Amish school is all about. Very eye opening and we learned a lot.

Hi, Joyce! Not that we're aware of, but I'd suggest maybe calling your local visitor's bureau, they may have more up to date info!
