A seasonal meeting for worship was established in 1743 by Burlington Monthly Meeting in the area of Arney's Mount for Mount Holly Friends. This meeting was known as Shreve's Mount. In 1776, a preparative meeting was established and transferred to Mount Holly Monthly Meeting later that year. The Orthodox branch of this preparative meeting was discontinued in 1827; its members were attached to Mount Holly Preparative Meeting (Orthodox). The Orthodox meeting for worship was discontinued in 1828. From 1830 to 1855, the Hicksite branch of this meeting was known as Mount or The Mount.

By 1929, appointed meetings only were held. In 1941, a regular meeting for worship was organized at Arney's Mount by Mount Holly Friends.
