Biographical / Historical

From 1928 to 1934 an independent meeting for worship known as the Harrisburg Society of Friends was active in central Pennsylvania. The meeting was revived in 1940, and sought the care of the Philadelphia Quarterly Meetings (Hicksite & Orthodox). Harrisburg Monthly Meeting was established as a United monthly meeting under the two Philadelphia Quarterly Meetings in 1941. The monthly meeting was transferred to Caln Quarterly Meeting in 1957 and is currently active.
