Mellinger Meetinghouse (Schoeneck, Pennsylvania, USA)

Jump to: navigation, search

Mellinger meetinghouse was a union meetinghouse built by the Lutherans, Reformed, Mennonites (Mennonite Church), and Dunkards in 1861 three quarters of a mile southwest of Schoeneck in northern Lancaster County, PA. The Shirk home east of town was the first Mennonite meeting place in this area. The ministers of the Indiantown Mennonite Church held services here once a month until 1921, and in 1942 relinquished all rights to the building. The services became more frequent in the Hammer Creek-Indiantown district and in 1926 led to the revival of the Cocalico meetinghouse.
