The Conneautville New Order Amish settlement in Conneautville, Pennsylvania, USA was established in 1970. The settlement started when the John Raber and Joe Troyer families from Wayne County, Ohio felt the need for more spiritual activities for their youth. They bought two two farms near Conneautville, and the community was established.

The settlement in 2014 included farmers, rope manufacturers, pallet shops and various trades. Conneautville is considered an "electric" New Order Amish settlement.

John B. Raber was an ordained minister when he moved to Conneautville in 1970. Menno E. Fisher was ordained as a minister in 1972, as as the bishop in 1976.

In 2014 the settlement was part of the New Order Amish. The bishops were Menno Fisher, John I. Fehr, and Christian R. Fisher. There were two districts with a total of 47 family units.

The Rundell Christian School was established in 1971; the Westview Christian School began in 2003.
