St.Jacobs, Ontario, Canada 13

Description : The Mennonites trekked from Pennsylvania in Conestoga Wagons and settled in and around St. Jacobs in the late 1700s and early 1800s, making St. Jacobs one of the original Mennonite settlements in Ontario. Today, the rural areas around St. Jacobs Country are populated with many Old Order Mennonite farmers who retain the religion, customs and lifestyle of their 19th century forefathers. Interest in this unique group of people has increased dramatically over the past 20 years and visitors from all over the world want to learn about the culture of the Old Order Mennonites.
