After the Great Separation, the Hicksite branch retained the meetinghouse that had been erected in 1693 and the Orthodox branch met in members' homes until they erected a meetinghouse on Buck Lane i Haverford township in 1834.

Valley Friends

Valley
Existence Date Range:

Due to the distance from Radnor, it was determined that Valley members would be better served by having their own monthly meeting, and in 1936 Valley Monthly Meeting was created by Philadephia Quarterly out of Radnor Monthly. In 1955, the meeting was transferred to the newly formed Haverfords Quarterly.
