This three-story brick building was erected in Mount Pleasant in 1814 and was the first yearly Quaker meeting house west of the Alleghenies. Capable of holding 2,000 people, the building contains an auditorium with a balcony. The auditorium can be divided into two rooms by lowering a wooden partition; when the building was actively used by Quakers, men and women met separately.
The Mount Pleasant meeting house was used regularly until 1909. Jess Thomas and Robert Carothers laid out Mount Pleasant in 1803. It soon became an important market for Quaker settlers.
