First Mennonite Settlement, The

The first Mennonites known to have settled in what is now Ontario took up land west of the mouth of Twenty Mile Creek in 1786. By the end of the century, a settlement of some 25 families from Pennsylvania was established in the vicinity of present-day Vineland and Jordan where in 1801 the first Mennonite congregation in Canada was organized.
