Mennonite settlements in the U.S.

A few Mennonites arrived in America in 1683 and lived in the Germantown area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the oldest settlement in the U.S. More arrived in the early 1700s. Philadelphia became the port of preference for Amish and Mennonite immigrants. Many of them lived briefly in the village of Germantown but then moved on to other parts of Pennsylvania, Virginia and Ohio. Today the largest concentrations of Mennonites are found in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, California, and Virginia.
