Huber (Mennonite Church) was a "preaching appointment" in York County, Ontario, which appeared in the Calendar of Appointments for 1854. In 1858 the meeting place was given as Whitchurch Township, which is north of Markham. The Mennonite minister Martin Huber (Hoover) resided near the present village of Gormley for several years before moving to Indiana in 1857. It appears that services were held in or near his home before he left this section. The name Stecklin is later used in referring to this settlement. Stecklin alternated in services with Huber before the building of the Almira Meetinghouse in I860. The Steckley pioneers lived a few miles east of Huber at Bethesda village.
