George Fox founder of the Religious Society of Friends also known as Quakers passed through this community in 1672 holding the first local meeting of Friends in a field located approximately 1.5 miles east of this location at what is today the vicinity of Porterfield Lane and Quaker Drive. Legend has it that this mill stone marked the location of the original meeting until the stone was moved to the current Meeting House site to protect it circa 1960.
Given in memory of W. Horace Holland
