County Seat: Lawrenceburg
LawrenceCounty is home to a fairly large Amish community, especially near the town of Ethridge.
The Amish people are a religious group that, among other things, refuses to go along with the changes that the industrial age has brought to the world. That means that they don’t have things such as cars, television sets and telephones; in fact, they usually don’t use electricity at all!
The Amish make their living as farmers and craftsmen, and people actually come from far away to visit Ethridge and buy things such as quilts, rocking chairs and hand-woven baskets at family-run stores there.
