The Allensville Mennonite Church [name of congregation] traces its origin to the Amish group organized in 1861 by Solomon Byler, the group that established meeting houses in 1869. The congregation is affiliated with the Allegheny Conference of the Mennonite Church [denomination], the largest body of Mennonites in North America. Its meeting house is located on Route 655, a short distance from the village of Allensville. A distinct style of dress is still discernible, for women wear white prayer coverings and print dresses, and a few still wear plain Mennonite bonnets. "
