Stouffer Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), located in the Ringgold District, Washington County, Maryland, was or­ganized in the Beaver Creek District, in a building later used by the Brethren Church. In 1828 a stone church was built on the present site. The name was doubtless given in honor of the minister John Stouf­fer (1746-1836), who later became the bishop. The old building was replaced by a brick church in 1895. This is said to have been the first organized Men­nonite congregation in Washington County. The ministers who have served up until 1957 were John Stouffer, Abr. Stouffer, Christian Newcomer, John Martin, John Hoover, David Shank, Denton Martin, and Amos J. Martin. The mem­bership in 1957 was 104.
