The Miami Monthly Meeting of Friends was established on the 13th day of the 10th month,1803 being a part of the Redstone Quarterly Meeting and the Baltimore Annual Meeting. The eastern boundary was the Hocking River, the southern was the Ohio River, but there was no limit to the north or to the west. The Miami Quarterly Meeting was opened, Fifth month 1809. The building of the White Brick Meetinghouse at Waynesville was begun in 1811 to accommodate the Quarterly Meeting. In 1828, a division in philosphy was followed by withdrawals by one side or the other into so-called "Hicksite" and so called "Orthodox" branches. Further separations occurred within the Orthodox body. When the separation occurred in 1828 , the Yearly Meeting split into two bodies: Indiana Yearly Meeting Orthodox (later Friends United Meeting) and Indiana Yearly Meeting Hicksite (later Friends General Conference). At Waynesville the Hicksite body retained the White Brick Meeting House and in 1836, the Orthodox body constructed the Red Brick Meeting House.
