Inscription.  
Colerain Township was the location of the earliest Quaker settlement and the first organized Friends Meeting in Ohio. The first meeting house was built in 1800. The log structure burned and was replaced with this brick building in 1815.

The Friends supported anti-slavery, the Underground Railroad, and temperance. In 1828 the Quakers split into the Hicksite and Orthodox branches. The Hicksites continued to worship here until they disbanded in 1919.
