1. Quaker Baptist Church Marker
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.
