Lancaster County Amish population grows despite urban sprawl
April 28, 2019
LANCASTER, PA — The Amish population in Pennsylvania's Lancaster County continues to grow each year despite the encroachment of urban sprawl on their communities.
Some experts are concerned that a planned 75-acre housing-and-commercial project will make it more difficult for the county to accommodate the Amish.
U.S. Census Bureau figures show the county added about 2,500 people in 2018, and about 1,000 of them were Amish, the news site LNP reported Friday.
