Located at the intersection of Rt. 45 (Apple Harvest Drive) & Rt. 30 (Arden Nollville Road).
Benjamin Thornburg, a member of the Quaker faith, deeded on the 15th day of March, 1779, one acre "whereupon the meeting house of the people called Quaker now stands" to Jacob Moon, James Mendenhall, Anthony Lee and Stephen Thatcher. The deed states that other meeting houses or houses for the worship of God, the education of youths could be built and the land to be used for the burial of the dead. The deed was signed in the presence of Jessie Faulkner and Mordecai Ellis.
Tradition says that the little stone meeting house was used by the Quakers until the Civil War. The Methodists took the building over in 1865.
