Alexandropol (Dnipropetrovsk, South Russia)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Alexandropol, a subsidiary of the Mennonite Brethren Church at Memrik, in the Bachmut district, province of Ekaterinoslav (later Dnipropetrovsk, Russia), was located on purchased land in the village of Alexandropol and vicinity. It was founded in 1888 by fifteen Mennonite Brethren families. Since the population was increasing rapidly, a church seating four hundred was erected in 1893; it was closed by the police in 1901, but reopened in the same year. Leaders included Franz Goossen and Cornelius Isaak.
