Mount Holly Friends
Mount Holly, Burlington County
That the Quakers were among the earliest settlers in Mount Holly is
attested to by the central location of their meetinghouse, across from
the courthouse. The original meetinghouse, however, was built before
1743 about a mile north of this site, but when the town developed around
a mill to the south, a new meetinghouse was built in 1775. A significant
addition was built in 1850. National Register. In the background can
be seen Saint Andrew's Church, which is directly across the street from
the wonderful Burlington County Courthouse.
