The Aylmer Amish settlement began in 1953 as a result of immigration from Ohio. The Amish families who came from Piketon, Ohio decided to move because a nuclear bomb factory was being built close to their land. The language of worship is German; services are held in homes. This settlement is the home of the Pathway Publishing Co., totally owned and operated by Old Order Amish. Bishop Pete Yoder is considered the founding leader of the group.

The settlement is located three miles (five km) east of Aylmer, one mile (1.6 km) north of Highway 3. Daniel Stoll served as Bishop in 2001. In 1975 there were 75 members in this Old Order district.
