The North Salem Amish Mennonite Church, erected 1885, now extinct, was located about 14 miles (23 km) southwest of Huntsville, Ohio. Among the first settlers about 1874 were the following families: Bishop Jonas Yoder of Lagrange County, Indiana; Joseph Hartzler, Gideon Zook, and David Hartzler, a preacher, from Noble County, Indiana; several families from Tennessee, and a little later the I. K. Stoltzfus, E. B. Stoltzfus, and David Stoltzfus (preacher) families from Hartford, Kansas. In the late 1890s the families began moving to the West Liberty, Ohio, community about 20 miles (33 km) south. Services were discontinued entirely in 1906, the meetinghouse sold, and even the bodies in the cemetery removed to cemeteries near West Liberty.
