Across this driveway stood the old Quaker (Friends) meeting house and school. At the monthly meeting of the Friends dated Jan. 1, 1731, it was concluded that "ye meeting for worship shall be removed from John Sculls (house) and shall henceforth be kept in ye meeting house by James Somers'es."
James Somers (1695-1761) gave by will in 1758 "one acre of land to the people called Quakers for a meeting house and burying ground, whereon the Meeting House now stands forevermore." The meeting house stood until about 1868. Central Methodist Episcopal Church was given permission to use the cemetery in 1860 and received the deed from the Quakers in 1944. The Friend-Central Cemetery Association was organized in 1941.
