The First Oblong Friends Meeting House was erected on this site in 1742. It was used as a place of worship until 1764. West of the site was the Friends burial ground.

During the fall and winter of 1778 the present meeting house was a hospital for Revolutionary War soldiers. Directly east are the graves of the soldiers who died during those months.
