South Peel Mennonite Meetinghouse (Wallenstein, Ontario, Canada)
The South Peel Markham-Waterloo Mennonite Conference congregation began services in 1963. The congregation originated through outreach by the Markham-Waterloo Mennonite Conference. It discontinued because the Old Order Mennonites opposed the use of their building.
Minister Amsey Martin served in 1965 as a non-salaried congregational leader. The congregation dissolved in 1965. It had been affiliated with the Markham-Waterloo Mennonite Conference (1963-65). The language of worship was English and German; the transition from German occurred in the 1940s.
The meetinghouse was located on the northeast corner of Peel Township Road 15 and Hwy. 86, 2 km west of Wallenstein.
