Brubaker's Mennonite Meetinghouse (Rohrerstown, Pennsylvania, USA)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Brubaker’s Mennonite Meetinghouse (Mennonite Church) was located a mile (1.5 km) north of Rohrerstown, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The Abbeyville congregation moved its worship to this location in 1792, where a beautiful cemetery still marks the site. Here Bishop Jacob Brubaker, a moderator of Lancaster Mennonite Conference, preached. This meetinghouse was replaced by a larger church in 1854, which served until 1895, when the congregation built a new church in Rohrerstown.
