History: The Metamora Mennonite Church, originally known as the Partridge Creek Congregation, was the first Amish-Mennonite congregation in Illinois. It was established in 1833 by Bishop Christian Engel and pioneer farmers from Alsace-Lorraine and the surrounding areas in Europe. The first meetinghouse, located about five miles west of Metamora, was built in 1854. In the spring of 1889, a new building was built east of Metamora, and the congregation became known as the Metamora Amish Mennonite Church. In 1911, another new building was constructed on the current site. Our present meetinghouse was erected in 1952.
