David Warther Carvings is located in Holmes County Ohio, home of the largest Amish settlement in the United States. Our location between the villages of Sugarcreek and Walnut Creek, Ohio places us in the geographic center of our Amish community.
Amish families began migrating to America in the early 1700's and first settled in eastern Pennsylvania. In the late 1800's, a large migration of Amish from Switzerland moved to this region of Ohio along with other Swiss immigrants including David's great-grandparents. This new settlement continued to grow in Holmes County Ohio, and today this Amish community is the largest in America with Elkhart, Indiana and Lancaster, Pennsylvania being home to the second and third largest communities respectively.
The local Amish newspaper, "The Budget", is printed in the nearby village of Sugarcreek with volunteer correspondents, known as scribes, mailing in news articles from their homes throughout the Americas. With a circulation of 20,000 subscribers, the paper is distributed locally and sent to smaller Amish and Mennonite communities throughout the United States, Canada, Central and South America.
Our area is a popular tourist destination, and a web search for "Ohio Amish Country" will take you to any number of sites that will give you a good idea what this area has to offer its many visitors. Your tax deductible donations to David Warther Carvings will be used to help us operate our new facility to bring David's artwork to the visiting public.
