|Amish Phone Booth with Solar Panel|
Leave a message
Most tourists visiting Jamesport ask about the little buildings scattered throughout the countryside. They look for the most part like out houses. They are actually Amish phone booths.
The Amish here will not allow phones in their homes, but will allow the use of phones as long as they are away from the house and cannot be heard. The idea is that a phone in the house would detract from family quality time. The Amish do "not" answer phones. If you want to reach an Amish friend, you have to leave a message on their answering machine. They will call you back
|Inside of Amish Phone Booth|
The inside of the phone booths appear to be small offices where Amish check messages and make business calls.
