Hochstett (Alsace, France)
Hochstett, a former Amish Mennonite congregation in France, became extinct in the 19th century. It was located about 10-15 miles (16-25 km) northwest of Strasbourg, near the towns of Brumath and Hochfelden. The list of congregations represented at the Essingen Amish Mennonite Conference of 1779 includes a Hochstettler congregation represented by Christian Schenk and Hans Höfle (Mennonitische Geschichts-Blätter, where Hochstätten near Münster am Stein, Germany, is suggested as the location of the congregation). The text of the Essingen discipline as published in Mennonite Quarterly Review, however, names a Hoffstetter congregation represented by Andreas Imhoff and Christian Schantz. It is not clear whether the two (or three) congregations are identical.
