The Redding Old Order Amish settlement, located in Ringgold County, Iowa, just north of Missouri, began in December 1994 when the Junior Detweiler family moved to the community. By the summer of 1995 seven families had settled northeast and southeast of the hamlet of Redding, many of them from the Jamesport, Missouri Amish community located 80 miles (130 km) southeast of Redding. In 2015 there were 35 families in the Redding settlement, composing two Amish districts.

Vernon Troyer, one of the 1995 settlers from Jamesport, was an ordained Amish bishop, and provided early spiritual leadership for the community. Allen Detweiler and Lester Beechy were ordained as ministers in 1998.

In addition to farming, by 2008 the community included a variety store, a window shop, three greenhouses, a furniture shop, harness shop, buggy shop, and several sawmills.
