Peake Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), located 2 miles northwest of Hinton, VA, a rural mission church of the Middle District of the Virginia Mennonite Conference, began in 1915 when a Sunday school was organized in a schoolhouse in this highland area. A congregation was established in 1923. Kent Shank and Joseph A. Brunk, active Sunday-school workers, asked permission of the Middle District Council to build the meetinghouse. This was granted if the necessary funds could be raised. H. B. Keener followed by Snively Martin served as pastors of this church for many years; James Shank served here 1947-57. Dewitt Heatwole was the pastor in 1958 with a membership of 47.
