Swartzentruber Amish Group Moving From Pennsylvania To Upstate New York

AP reported Saturday that the 21-family congregation of Swartzentruber Amish who have lived in western Pennsylvania are moving to St. Lawrence County in upstate New York rather than continue their battles with local officials over sewage disposal codes. (See prior posting.) Land values in western Pennsylvania have been rising because of the Marcellus Shale natural gas boom.
