In the mid-1800s, an Amish farmer named Manasses Hochstetler came to Indiana. As he cleared the land for his farm, he used the wood to build furniture for his family. He passed this skill on to his son Cornelius; Cornelius passed it on to his son Henry, and so on down the line. This rich heritage is the foundation for Manasses Henry Furniture Company, owned and operated by Gene Beachy, the great-great grandson of Manasses Hochstetler. Every piece is made from solid lumber construction. The finest northern hardwoods - oak, cherry, pine, maple, walnut and quarter sawn white oak- are harvested especially for this furniture.

No, the Beachy Amish don't live down at the old seashore but if one clue can be given, take a look at our picture above. Do you notice some Amish colors showing? No more of the drab black as the Beachy Amish are sporting some color.
Founded more as a fellowship in 1927 by Moses Beachy, the name took hold even though Moses himself asked for that not to be done out of all due humility.
The above picture and statement was taken from the Beachy Amish web site, click link below.
Here is a Beachy Amish web site, that I think you will enjoy, check it out. Some of the articles and opinions posted there may make you angry or maybe you will agree with them, either way it will cause you to think.
