One of the biggest attractions in our area is the Amana Colonies. The Amana Colonies are a group of settlements of German Pietists in Iowa, comprising of seven villages. They first settled near Buffalo in New York, but to better live out their beliefs they moved to Iowa. For 80 years they maintained an almost completely self-sufficient local economy, importing very little from the wider, industrializing U.S. economy. They were able to achieve this independence and life-style by keeping to the specialized handcrafts and farming occupations that they brought with them from Germany. Today the Colonies are known mainly for their restaurants and craft shops. Some of the shops they have are woodworking shops, wine shops, and Millstream a brewery. The Colonies have been listed as a National Historic Landmark since 1965.
