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 Interstate 24 and I40 is the town of McMinnville. Home of the Birthing Tree that is said to be the largest and oldest tree in Tennessee. Just west of the the city limits is the town of Morrison. At the crossing of highway 287 and Shelbyville Road 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 Mennonite run the store and have a map to the Amish community businesses. The Amish here are Swartzentruber and have the large vegetable stands during harvest times in front of their homes. 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 of the Birthing Tree and relative area of safety. The newly built Hampton Inn is our top choice in hotels in this area. It is literally right beside the Birthing Tree and brand new in 2021! The Best Western is just off the road and has an indoor pool and nice amenities. The Falcon Rest Mansion has rooms available 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 on to Crossville. The McMinnville area had a lot of things to do so see these hotels if you want to stay over a few days.
