Friends Meeting House

Colerain Township was the location of the
earliest Quaker settlement and the first
organized Friends Meeting in Ohio. The first
meeting house was built in 1800. The log
structure burned and was replaced with
this brick building in 1815.
The Friends supported anti-slavery, the
Underground Railroad, and temperance. In 1828
the Quakers split into the Hicksite and
Orthodox branches. The Hicksites continued
to worship here until they disbanded in 1919.
