Lampeter Friends Meeting House & Burial Ground - Bird-in-Hand, PA

Lampeter Friends Meeting House was built in 1749 and rebuilt in 1889.

Lampeter meeting house was originally a church and a stop on the underground railroad. It is also the burial site of Daniel and Hannah Gibbons, a Quaker couple who for 65 years provided assistant and shelter to as many as 1000 fugitive slaves. They operated the underground railroad station north of town before the Civil War.

The Gibbons' 1815 brick home might have become an Underground Railroad landmark, but a former owner first restored the house and then destroyed it three decades ago. The house is no longer standing.

The Keystone Fellowship Friends hold their meetings in this building

Located at: 2641 Old Philadelphia Pike, Bird-in-Hand, PA
