The Chesterville New Order Amish settlement south and east of Chesterville, Ohio, USA was established in 2012. The settlement started when two families moved from Guthrie, Kentucky in May 2012. Other families from various locations joined them by 2014.

Most families were farmers, with single families in construction and pallet construction. Chesterville is considered an "electric" New Order Amish community.

Initially the families of the settlement traveled to Holmes County for worship service, while holding Sunday school in local homes. They hoped to have regular worship services at Chesterville by fall 2014.

Abe J. Miller, a bishop, and Harvey Schrock, Jr., a minister, were part of the settlement in 2014.

In 2014 the Chesterville settlement was part of the New Order Amish. There was one district with a total of seven family units.
