Casselman Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church) was located several miles south of Grantsville, Garrett County, western Maryland, in the beautiful valley of the Casselman River. The community had its first services in 1874, probably in the homes, and later in the Ridgeley schoolhouse. The Casselman church was built in 1889. In 1952 it had a membership of 55, with Milton B. Miller serving as bishop. It was a member of the Southwestern Pennsylvania Conference.
