The exact year of construction of the Radnor Meeting House is unknown, but it dates as early as 1693 with a record of the marriage of Philip Philip and Phoebe Evans taking place in “the meeting house in Rad(n)or & in a publick assembly of friends there met together.” As noted on its gable, the present meeting house was erected in 1718, and the portion on the eastern end added sometime later as a school building.
