Looking for stories wherein politics, religion, and education interact? Civil War soldiers occupying Caroline camped by invitation here. Public as well as religious schools operated here. And Quakers, Nicholites and “Dunkers” worshiped here. Worshipers included a captor of a notorious slave kidnapper, a rarely-documented female UGRR agent, and a teacher who admitted black children – the local magistrate be damned!
It is hoped that a multi-phase partnership between the Society and the owner, Choptank Electric, plus the Choptank Electric Foundation will work to preserve all four sides of the story-filled building. Phase one in 2019 centered on restoring of the east façade and painting the south façade. The Society is again working to save the Meeting House, where politics, religion and education intersected.
