Built in 1816, the Drumore Quaker meetinghouse in southern Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, was home to the Drumore Friends Meeting for 120 years. Quakers moved to the area at the turn of the 19th century and became part of Little Britain Monthly Meeting. Many of its members were active in the Underground Railroad at mid-century, as were other Quakers thoughout Lancaster County and elsewhere. By the early 20th century the meeting was in decline, but members who were concerned about the preservation of the meetinghouse and cemetery formed the Drumore Cemetery Association. Many of those Friends are pictured below at the time of the meetings 1916 centennial. The association has faithfully maintained the property and in 2016 is commemorating the 200th anniversary of the building of the meetinghouse.
