Turtle Creek Friends’ Society. – This is one of the oldest Quaker societies in the county. The meeting-house is situated on the northeast section of the Township and belongs to the Orthodox Friends. It is believed to have been organized about 1806, or two years after the arrival in that vicinity of Henry Steddom and Abraham Hollingsworth, two pioneer Quakers who came from South Carolina in 1804, and settled on the hills of the Little Miami, about five miles below Waynesville. These two men were prominent in the organization of this society. Near the meeting-house is an old burying ground.
