Mount Holly Friends
Mount Holly, Burlington County

That the Quakers were among the earliest settlers in Mount Holly is attested to by the central location of their meetinghouse, across from the courthouse. The original meetinghouse, however, was built before 1743 about a mile north of this site, but when the town developed around a mill to the south, a new meetinghouse was built in 1775. A significant addition was built in 1850. National Register. In the background can be seen Saint Andrew's Church, which is directly across the street from the wonderful Burlington County Courthouse.
