The Milverton Northeast Mornington District Amish is located north of Wellesley Township Rd. 7 and east of Poole to Millbank Road. It began services in 1886, and formally organized in 1891. The congregation meets in homes. The congregation originated through division from the Wellesley-Mornington Amish due to the size of the congregation and travel distances. Mornington refers to the township in Perth County, Ontario.

In 1965 there were 70 members; in 1975, 97. It has been affiliated with the Old Order Amish. The language of worship is German.

Bishop Manuel Wagler served in 2001 as a non-salaried congregational leader.
