FEATURED YODER MERCHANTS
KS on the "net"
Welcome to Yoder, Kansas
In 1906, A.M. Switzer
plotted the little town of Yoder as a central point for
surrounding Amish communities. Today, Yoder is still considered to
be that. Though many businesses and homes have moved in around
Yoder, the picturesque town has stayed the same size.
With the emergence of
new business, Yoder has prospered, inviting visitors to take a
step back in time and enjoy Amish settlement. The town is a quaint
mixture of the past and present, as horse buggies are intermingled
with cars and trucks. Many businesses cater to the tourist trade,
making it convenient to enjoy this wonderful Amish community.
Yoder welcomes its
visitors to enjoy the simplicity of the past with comforts of the
Yoder's finest merchants are featured on this web site. Click on
