This meeting house was founded by English immigrants and missionaries Samuel and William Jeffcoat outside of the established townships of Orangeburgh, Amelia and Saxe Gotha and New Windsor, in an area known to be inhabited by Native Americans. The region and meeting house were visited by Bishop Francis Asbury three times by 1816.
