About Us

Our organization was founded in 1992, largely through the initiatives of Russell Krabill, in order to research, preserve and promote the history of Anabaptist groups living in LaGrange, Elkhart, Kosciusko and Marshall Counties in north central Indiana. One of our specific goals is to be a resource for and encourager of congregational historians.

We sponsor public programs in the spring and fall of each year, occasionally organize field trips to local areas of interest, publish a newsletter twice a year and call members’ attention to other programs that deal with the history and culture of local Anabaptist communities.

Membership in MAH is only $10 per year. The fee makes possible the publication of the newsletter and other writings, the erecting of historical markers, and the continuation of this website. Members also receive e-mail notices of special events and opportunities between the two annual meetings.

To become a member, send a check for $10, made out to “Michiana Anabaptist Historians,” to Helene Hoover at the address given below.
