A number of the first families came to the area late in the year. They built the Meeting House and stayed there the first winter. Then in the spring built their own homes.

Thank you for sharing this photo Robert.  I love log structures and the reason behind this one is very special.

That's great, thanks for sharing!  The Quakers sure were industrious folks.

A measure of their devotion that they would build a house of worship before they’d build their own homes. I gotta admire that.

Really it was out of necessity. It was too late to build individual homes.

Robert, thank you for sharing this photo of the Quaker meeting house.  Made of all logs, there was a joint effort to erect this building. I love the trees and bushes growing around it, and the bricks that surround the yard.  It makes for a beautiful setting.

It is too bad that you do not find this type of cooperation among people today.

Thanks again, Robert, and God Bless!
