“There are four Congregations of Old Order Amish close to Dover. They are divided into east, south, north and middle districts, each district comprising about 28 families. They meet on alternate Sundays, two districts on one Sunday and the other two districts on the following Sunday. They maintain no church-houses, but hold their services in different members’ homes. For this reason they are sometimes referred to as ‘House Amish’ as distinguished from the ‘Church Amish’… who maintain meeting-houses.” (1)
