VA-KM-5 Quaker Baptist Church

Marker text: Quaker Baptist Church KM-5

A meeting was established on Goose Creek in 1757, and a meeting house built. Fear of Indians caused most of the Quakers to move elsewhere though some of them returned. Unsuccessful attempts were made to re-establish the Goose Creek Meeting. Before 1824 a church was established near here. Known as Difficult Creek Baptist Church. The present church (Quaker Baptist), built in 1898, stands near the site of the old building.
