Inscription.  A Quaker Meeting was established on Goose Creek in 1757, and a meeting house built. Fear of Indians caused most of the Quakers to move elsewhere though some of them returned. Unsuccessful attempts were made to re-establish the Goose Creek Meeting. Before 1824 a church was established here, known as Difficult Creek Baptist Church. The present church (Quaker Baptist), built in 1898, stands near the site of the old building.
 
Erected 1949 by Virginia Conversation Commission. (Marker Number KM-5.)
