Louisville, Ohio, is a town (1955 population 4,000) in a farming community in east central Stark County. Five miles (eight km) northeast of Louisville an (Old) Mennonite settlement worships at the Beech Church, which had 369 members in 1955, 7 per cent of whom lived in the town. Probably all lived within shopping distance of Louisville. Mennonites (Amish from Alsace) came to this community in 1823.
