The Allensville Mennonite Church (Conservative Mennonite Conference), formerly called Allensville Amish Mennonite Church, was organized in 1861 by Solomon Byler. It later became a member of the Ohio and Eastern Amish Mennonite Joint Conference. In 1957 it became part of the geographically closer Allegheny Mennonite Conference, and about 2003 it joined the Conservative Mennonite Conference. The first meetinghouse was built a short distance east of Allensville in 1869 and rebuilt in 1932. A new building was erected in 1949.

The membership in 1953 was 349; in 2006 the membership was 229; the bishop in 1953 was B. R. Peachey; preachers, J. B. Zook, J. E. Hartzler; deacon, U. S. Zook.
