Built in 1814, the Quaker Yearly Meeting House was the first yearly meeting house west of the Alleghenies. It is included in the Mount Pleasant Historic District for its association with the Quaker movement and the Underground Railroad. It became the responsibility of the Ohio History Connection in 1950. The Yearly Meeting House has recently been restored to preserve the structure for future generations and to better illustrate the rich heritage of Mt. Pleasant and its role in Ohio history.
Quaker Meeting House is managed locally by the Mount Pleasant Historical Society.
