We, the subscribers, knowing the necessity of public worship, and being destitute of a piece of land to set a meeting house, do each of us, unite to pay the respective sums under written, in order to get a warrant for twenty-five acres of land adjoining Stephen Ail's (Ayles, Eyles) land, as witness our hands.

The first house of worship was a log structure built in 1745 on the site of the present graveyard. The Warrington Monthly Meeting, which was composed of Newberry and Warrington Preparative Meetings, was established by authority of the quarterly meeting. (Preparative meetings are established when membership in a particular Meeting is very large or in this case, has expanded beyond the established community.)

In 1747, Sadsbury Meeting, the sponsoring quarterly meeting, appointed a committee to visit Friends west of the Susquehanna. A favorable report was received and liberty was granted on September 9, 1747 to organize the Warrington Monthly Meeting "for discipline and the affairs of truth." The first monthly meeting was held in the log meetinghouse October 9, 1747 and William Underwood was chosen clerk, the highest office of the monthly meeting.

Since Warrington was in the center of the Quaker settlements, the first monthly meeting which was held here in 1747 included Newberry, Menallen and perhaps Huntingdon and York Springs. At present, Warrington comes under the jurisdiction of the Baltimore Yearly Meeting.

The original log structure burned in 1749 but was rebuilt. The adjoining cemetery was established as a burial ground for Quakers and others in the community as early as 1760.
