The Amish in the next county over has grown a lot in the last 20 years. A lot of the new building they build look like pole barns with metal siding, but they build a house in part of it, so the structure may have a house and barn under the same roof. Many of the farms have 2 or 3 houses, multiple generations living on the same property.
I think one of the first buildings here might have been a kind of a dormitory for families to stay in before they have found or built their own houses. There's also a 1-room school, which is surrounded by buggies during the day when the children are there.

Back before the Great Depression, my mother attended the same 1-room school her father and his father attended. My brother attended a 4-room elementary school for his first 7 grades. I missed out on the tiny school experience because we moved.

An uncooperative rooster! Constantly in motion. It was hard to focus on its eyes!

Yeah, they're really hard to catch. Mine doesn't really like me, so I've stopped trying to get good photos of it. :/

Old double-well corn crib, with the original ventilated compartments covered with siding, very likely for more weather-proof equipment storage. Very tall and productive corn crop not far away, no doubt destined for large modern grain bins.
