Cecil Monthly Meeting was established in 1698 out of Third Haven Monthly Meeting. The Orthodox meeting was discontinued in 1928. Cecil Monthly Meeting (Hicksite) became inactive around 1899. In 1941, a "revived meeting" named Cecil Monthly Meeting was established to care for the property & transfer the title to Third Haven Monthly Meeting; this body met primarily in Swarthmore, Pa., and ceased activity in 1952 after its objectives were attained.
