Orthodox Friends Meeting House at Spring Meadow, Pa.


Harry Pontius of Burke, Va. passes along this photo that was given to him by Fred Ickes of Fishertown, Pa. (Isn't the internet great?)

A note from Fred Ickes (on the back of the photo) indicates that this photo shows the log construction of the "Society of Friends Dunnings Creek Orthodox Meeting House at Spring Meadow, Pa., as it appeared around 1900. Built about 1832 and abandoned in 1883 when a new Meetinghouse was built in Fishertown, Pa. Around 1908, John Reynolds, owner of the farm where the Fish Hatchery is located, bought the old Meetinghouse and made it into a dwelling for his summer home. It burned down in the early 1960's. It was on the hill North of the Cemetery. This is not of the original Meetinghouse built about 1795 to 1797."


Thank you very much, to both Harry and Fred for this view into the past in East St. Clair Twp., Bedford Co., Pa.
