Fishburn Meeting House

notes from Notes and Queries, by William Henry Egle, M.D., M.A. Annue Vol. 1896

In Derry Township, a few miles east of Hummelstown, was erected in the year 1846 a one-story limestone church or meeting house, by the United Brethren in Christ, and remodeled in the year 1886. Long before the year in which the house was erected the followers of Otterbein worshipped in the surrounding country among its members holding their meetings statedly in houses during the winter and barns in summer, excepting when the large gatherings were had, they went to the woods and held their "two day" meetings, or if longer than that, it was known as a camp meeting. Adjoining the church is a well kept graveyard, where sleep in death those who succeeded many of the Scotch-Irish to the farms in old Derry township and who received their early religious training at Sand Hill and Hummelstown Lutheran churches.
