Western Tennessee Amish Map.

The West Tennessee Amish Map

The western side of Tennessee is also nationally famous for a few reasons. Memphis-style BBQ is one good reason. The Memphis blues is another. Gibson Guitars makes their semi and hollow-body guitars in downtown Memphis because of the heritage of the blues guitar players' role in the music scene. The Mississippi River flows down the edge of Tennessee, making a beautiful landscape leading to the swampy marshland that attracts large amounts of waterfowl each year.  Our stayover place is in Jackson, Tennessee, where we base our western map from. We have many Amish communities in West Tennessee that we want you to see! 

Meet the Amish of West Tennessee

These Amish communities differ in many ways. The Stantonville Amish are Swartzentruber, so they use the most primitive technology and have better crops for those looking for vegetable stands in the summer. The Huntingdon Amish were woodworkers and builders who are also Old Order. The McKenzie Amish were also Old Order but had a mix of plants and parts. They had a lot of things for sale and had many workers that offered things at their homes. We have a page devoted to each Western Tennessee Amish community, linked in the buttons below! 

Huntingdon Amish

The Huntingdon Amish community started in 1975 and now has around 200 Amish persons living in one church district. Click the button below to see our page devoted to this community!

Welcome to Jackson, Tennessee

Our place to stay is in Jackson, Tennessee, as the Amish communities are just north of Jackson. The railway and the birthplace of rockabilly music also make Jackson the better choice for us to recommend. Much of the blues and rock music that Memphis is famous for was written and performed first in Jackson. All other places of interest come out of Jackson like a wagon wheel, with Jackson being the hub city between Memphis and Nashville!

Where to stay in Jackson Tennessee

We found the area around the Casey Jones Museum to be a better place to stay. The museum area is just far enough off the interstate to be quiet, and there are many hotels in the area. The better places to eat are nearby, and the downtown nightlife is close. Our team mostly stays at the Comfort Inn in Jackson, where they have a large breakfast every morning and an indoor pool and hot tub. Jackson is like other cities with interstate travel in that if you want trouble, you will find it, but we here at the Amish of Ethridge took our young daughter and never had any trouble in this area.

Other Great TN Points of Interest

The Amish are the main focus of our Amish in Tennessee, but we also want to send you to see the Mennonite stores along the way! Mennonites run these stores and can be close to the Amish people in their old-world ways. Many of these stores are indistinguishable from their Amish counterparts and offer the same things. Below are some of the Mennonite stores we visited along the way!  

Ada's Country Store.

Ada's Country Store

We believe this is a Mennonite-run store with many bulk ingredients and natural foods. There is a great deli and ice cream area with an onsite bakery. The bathrooms were clean, and you could eat inside or walk around to see the Amish buggy outside!

Nashville Studio Tour 

Rca Record Studio Tour Nashville Tn.

RCA Record Studio Tour Nashville TN.

Nashville Tennessee is known as music city and it is the only one of its kind in the country. Why would so many publishing houses and entertainment companies move their headquarters to music row or the newer Berry Hill community if there were other places to go? It is because Nashville Tennessee is the capital when it come to music production. Country is still king here but there are rap, hip hop, heavy metal and other genre studios that are just as well known as their country counterparts. Many of these studios do not have a tour and will not let you in their building so we don't suggest making a scene so we feature the studios that have a tour or other way to see the inside of the studio. We will show other studios just so you can see the building from the outside. Just like when tour bus groups take a bus tour to see the home of the rich and famous! 

See the button link below where you can go straight to our Nashville Studio Tour webpage to get more information before you go on your trip!
