Kauffman's Mennonite Church (Lebanon County, Pennsylvania)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Kauffman's was formerly a Mennonite (Mennonite Church) congregation of the Lancaster Conference about two miles north of Annville in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. The community was settled by the Myers, Shirks, Ellenbergers, Lights, and Brightbills. In 1773 Frederick Kauffman was the Lebanon County bishop. The meetinghouse, which was built on the lands of Benjamin Bowman before 1768, was used until 1851, when the United Brethren claimed the building. The Mennonites then, under their bishop Jacob Dohner, moved east to the site of Dohner's meetinghouse, the congregation in 1957 bearing that name being the lineal descendant of Kauffman's.
