Salem Mennonite Church

Decatur County, Iowa
 The first Mennonite family, the Wayne Miller's, came to Decatur County in 1958. Others soon followed.

The first church house was the Franklin Church northeast of Leon. (See Franklin Cemetery) The building now serves as the Mennonite school. In 1972 a new frame church house was built 2 miles east of Leon.

A wedding was held soon after it's completion. A 1 1/2 year old girl was the first burial in the cemetery located just north of the church.
