The Morrison McMinnville Amish Community
The Amish of Ethridge team says the Morrison McMinnville Amish community is one of the most beautiful communities they have seen. Between Interstates 24 and 40 is the town of McMinnville, the home of the Birthing Tree, which is said to be the largest and oldest tree in Tennessee. Just west of the city limits is the town of Morrison. Where Highway 287 and Shelbyville Road intersects is the Amish Community of Morrison. You will find the Amish living along the side roads around the 4 Corners Bulk Foods and Deli, where the Mennonites run the store and have a map of the Amish community businesses. The Amish are Swartzentruber and have large vegetable stands in front of their homes during harvest times. This community started in 2014 and now has around 250 Amish persons living in 1 church district. They are very English friendly so go by and see them!

Morrison McMinnville Amish Area Lodging
We selected three places to stay due to their proximity to the Birthing Tree and relative areas of safety. The newly built Hampton Inn is our top choice of the hotels in this area. It is right beside the Birthing Tree and brand new in 2021! The Best Western is just off the road. It has an indoor pool and excellent amenities. The Falcon Rest Mansion has rooms for those who want a more Victorian stay. We made these selections for those who want to stay and play in the area. The Amish of Ethridge team did everything they wanted in one day and then went to Crossville. The McMinnville area has many things to do, so see these hotels if you want to stay over a few days.
