Amish farm site of the movie Witness
This past October I spent the day touring the amish countryside of Lancaster county with my brother and sister-in-law. We stopped at the amish farm where the movie Witness was fimed. Everything pretty much looks the same as in the movie except we learned that the main house was torn down and the owners are in the process of building a newer, more energy efficient one for them and their 9 children! :) The "summer kitchen" where most of the filiming along with the barn and the famous Purple Martin bird house still stands. We got the priviledge of talking with the present owner. The family was so nice to allow us just to peek around. We didnt' ask to go in buildings but just admire the scenery in the yard. :) It seems funny how much this amish lady new about the movie having never scene it since the amish are prohibited from watching films.
