Several Amish men construct a dairy barn along Rethwisch Road east of Frazee earlier this summer. The Amish community in Becker County stretches east of Frazee for about five miles between County Road 31 and the Toad Lake area. Several families migrated here from Michigan and Wisconsin in the spring of 2007. Several more families have moved to Becker County each year since. (Brian Basham/Tribune)
