Caesar's Creek Monthly Meeting
An Indulged Meeting for Worship was established by Miami Monthly Meeting for Friends on Caesars Creek on 10th mo. 10th 1805. It was located 7 miles northeast of Waynesville, Ohio. The meeting was also about the same distance from Harveysburg before Caesar's Creek Lake was developed.
The founders and most of the original members of the Caesar’s Creek Monthly Meeting migrated from Cane Creek Monthly Meeting, South Carolina to the Northwest territory to escape the evils of slavery. In effect, the entire Cane Creek Meeting transplanted itself in southwestern Ohio along winding and beautiful Caesar’s Creek near Waynesville, Ohio. The meetinghouse and large graveyard was situated on the west bluff overlooking the valley of Caesar's Creek.
The meetinghouse was moved to Caesar's Creek Pioneer Village when the lake was filled. The cemetery is still in the same location.
