The Huntingdon Amish Community
The Huntingdon Amish Community is just southeast of the McKenzie, Tennessee Amish community. These Amish started coming in 1975, and we met a few Amish men who said they started in plants (mainly crops) but moved to building and construction. During our visit, we saw many more builders than planters. A massive construction company called Yoder Brothers Construction and a J&E Cabinet made and installed custom cabinetry, shelving, crown molding, and other woodworks for the English. Their crew was in Nashville putting in many cabinets and other furniture from this large covered flatbed buggy that carried it from Huntingdon to Nashville. You can see the photos from the shop below the home carousel.
The Amish people do not generally let us English into their workshops very often. We met the manager of J&E Cabinet, and he had been to Ethridge to a few of our cabinet shops and talked with us about the Ethridge community. Once he got to know us, he let us in and showed us around. He let us take our camera and photo and video inside the shop as long as we didn't get any Amish workers on camera. We did as he said and kept the lens down while moving amongst the Amish workers. Below is inside the J&E Cabinet Shop!
The large Diesel engine powers a large shaft that runs 200 feet of the length of the building. This Amish group calls themselves old order but is not Swartzentruber, so they are allowed to use a Diesel engine for power. The equipment runs off pulleys that are stepped up or down with gears to make the proper RPM while running. The lights are skylights with no power, while the water is only cold, gravity-fed lines. We did not agree to an advertisement, but as a way to see this kind of Amish workshop, we are sharing this section as entertainment. We feel that we should at least share their information, so if you would like to hire J&E Cabinet or see them yourself, then they are located at 115 Red William Rd, Huntingdon, TN 38344, and call (731) 986-4434 for their call box and leave them a message. Don't expect them to give everyone a tour, but they may do so if you buy their cabinets or other woodworking. We don't want to make this page all about the cabinet shop; we just thought it was neat and worth sharing. The rest of the Huntingdon Amish Community was quiet, with most Amish people off to work. Maybe a Saturday would be better to visit than during the week. We will update this page as we return to this community.
Directions and our summary
Enter your location and find your way to the Huntingdon Amish Community. We found the majority of the Amish homes on Highway 219, Red William Road, Bethlehem Church Road, and surrounding roads coming off these roads. The map below is addressed to the Amish community center across from Yoder Brothers Construction. We found the Huntingdon community very lovely and saw quite a few interesting places. They have one schoolhouse for all grades and their own community building where English are also invited. We do recommend visiting the Huntingdon Amish Community.
*We do not represent any business or Amish community or speak on their behalf. The opinions here are those of The Amish of Ethridge team, and the photos and stories they tell are property of The Amish of Ethridge. We made the Amish Map around Tennessee for Amish visitors to visit other Amish communities. The Tennessee Amish Map we speak of is our own and part of the larger Buggy Wheel Trail.
Huntingdon Points of Interest
The town of Huntingdon and nearby Bruceton have some places we believe you will like. Some of these we visited personally, and some we found online or were recommended to us. Since the Huntingdon Amish community is a bit bigger than Springville, you may want to stay and talk to the Amish people or go to nearby Bruceton. Some of these links are from Facebook since some places don't have their own websites. Most of these links take you to locally owned restaurants of various kinds.
