Notes
Survey number HABS PA-6690
Building/structure dates: 1805 initial construction
Significance: Built in 1805, the Darby Meeting House was designed in the prototypical doubled form of the late eighteenth century. It appears unaltered from its original design and includes significant intact architectural features such as the pent in gable end, and the doorway hood at west end. Noteworthy interior features include the tiered built-in benches to the front and sides of the meeting house, offsetting the facing benches along the rear wall. Due to decreases in the Quaker population of this neighborhood, maintenance for this significant structure has become difficult.
