Comprehensive History

East Union Mennonite Church located at 10678 Old Lincoln Way, Orrville was established in 1945. Members purchased the Old Carr School House in 1945 on Carr Road, Orrville and met there. The East Union Mennonite Church (formerly East Union Conservative Amish Mennonite Church), Orrville, Ohio, USA, was established in 1945 as a daughter congregation of the Pleasant View Amish Mennonite Church.
