Strasburg Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church) of Franklin County, Pennsylvania, a member of Washington County, Maryland, and Franklin County, Pennsylvania Conference, began in the early 19th century when a log meetinghouse was built, probably in 1812. A brick building was constructed at a near-by site in 1858 and rebuilt in 1903. In 1942 the United States Government claimed this area for an Ammunition Depot which necessi­tated securing another, the present, place of wor­ship which was formerly a Brethren Church. Ministers who have served the congregation include John S. Burkholder, Henry Bricker, John Lehman, John Gsell, and Harry H. Witmer, the pastor in 1957, when there were 53 members.
