It is a beautiful Autumn morning in Montville, Ohio. Montville is an extremely rural area with many working farms, as well as a large Amish community.
The Amish typically pass down their land from one generation to the next, and it is not uncommon to see a family cemetery directly behind or next to their home.
While driving through this area, you will see horses pulling buggies, horses used for plowing fields, and laundry hanging on a line outside.
The streets are scattered with working farms and silos.
I love driving through this area. I love the simpleness of the lifestyle.
I stumbled across this beautiful barn while visiting a very old Amish cemetery. The backyard of this barn and farm house is the cemetery, separated only with an old split rail fence.
