Rancocas Friends
Rancocas, Burlington County


This fine meetinghouse was constructed in 1772, the year the Society was organized. Next door is an early schoolhouse, beautifully restored, of approximately the same vintage. The year 1772 can be seen in glazed brick in the gable end of the building. The building was used by both branches of the Quakers, following the schism in 1826.
