The Hoover family worshipped in this building along with neighbors and relatives who were members of the Religious Society of Friends, or Quakers as they are often called. West Branch was predominately a Quaker community in the 1850's when this meetinghouse was built in 1857. Silent meetings for worship were held here on First Day and Fourth Day each week. Religion played a strong role in Herbert Hoover's childhood. His family were active participants in the Society of Friends where his mother, Hulda Hoover, was a recorded minister.
