Inscription.  After attending monthly meetings in Waynesville and Springborough for many years, members of the Society of Friends built a log meeting house facing Clyo Road on two acres of land purchased from Solomon Miller in 1823. Abandoned as a church in 1858, when most members had moved out of the township, the structure was converted to a house only to be destroyed by fire soon after. The burial ground contains nine markers for eleven members of three families, but Quaker records show more interred here. In 1979 this cemetery was deeded over to Washington Township and is currently maintained by the township.
