Experience the Old Order Amish Community with a trip along New York's Amish Trail, located in the western portion of the Enchanted Mountains.  Unlike other Amish communities, there is no commercilization and life is still carried on without modern conveniences.

 Follow their hand-painted signs to their businesses, usually located in their homes.  You can stop at their shops and purchase quilts, furniture or baked goods any day except Sunday.  Take a drive through Amish country, step back in time and enjoy the simpler things in life along New York's Amish Trail.

Enjoy the modern conveniences at any of our non-Amish partners listed on AmishTrail.com.

Look for the Amish Trail signs!

Meaning of the word Cattaraugus

CATTARAUGUS, from a Seneca Indian word meaning “bad smelling banks,” referring to the odor of natural gas leaking from rock seams. http://www.dos.ny.gov/info/pdfs/countynames.pdf

The word "Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattaraugus_Creek.

In our opinion, only some of the river banks are bad smelling. Come on over and visit a creek in Cattaraugus County and tell us what you think.
