Dunning's Creek Friends Meetinghouse

-A A +A
1886. East of 319 Old Quaker Church Rd. (PA 4028)

This meetinghouse is a simple, tall brick building with slightly elongated double-sash four-over-four windows; each window has a segmental arch, and most have paneled wooden shutters. The facade has a small round-arched window in the gable end. A pair of narrow brick chimneys on the east and west elevations terminate at the cornice. There are entrances on all but the rear elevation. The interior is spare, with wooden benches facing inward to a central space and clear glass windows. The second story has been used as a high school and as a meeting place for community groups. A handsome two-and-one-half-story brick Second Empire house (c. 1886; 319 Old Quaker Church Road) lies west of the meetinghouse across from Blackburn Lane.
