Warrington Meetinghouse

-A A +A
1768, 1782. Quaker Meeting Rd. and PA 74, 0.5 miles northeast of Wellsville

The original fieldstone building was a single room with a central door flanked by windows, giving it the look of a one-story Chester County meetinghouse. It was enlarged with a second door and single window, creating an unusual variant on the double meetinghouse. Within, the simple plastered walls with plank wainscoting attest to the spread of the Quaker plain mode across the state.
