Cane Creek Monthly Meeting

The Society of Friends (Quakers) began in England in the 1650s, when they broke away from the Puritans. Pennsylvania was founded by William Penn, as a safe place for Friends to live and practice their faith.

Cane Creek Monthly Meeting is near Snow Camp, Almance County, North Carolina.

The first Monthly Meeting at Cane Creek was held on October 7, 1751. There were 30 Quaker families in the area.

In 1761 the meeting was divided by a dispute.
