Quaker Hicksite Meeting House
Blue River Friends Hicksite Meeting House is the oldest extant Quaker Meeting House in the State of Indiana.
More than two hundred years have elapsed since the Blue River Friends Hicksite Meeting House came into existence. Early in the 1800’s many families of Friends came to southern Indiana in opposition to slavery and established homes and places of worship in Washington County. Leaving comfortable homes in North Carolina, they traveled together to the lands that would soon become the states of Indiana and Ohio. The desire to live in a place where every man, woman, and child was a free person and to enjoy the liberties granted to them in the newly formed Northwest Territory was the impetus they needed to leave friends, family, and the meetings they held dear.
