Kennett Square Monthly Meeting began as Newark Monthly Meeting when it was first set up in 1693 by Chester Quarterly. In 1760, the name was changed to Kennett. The Orthodox branch of the meeting was discontinued in 1939 and its members transferred to New Garden Monthly Meeting, while the Hicksite branch retained the name of Kennett. The original meetinghouse is on Rte 1 at the entrance to Longwood at Kendal. The Orthodox branch continued to share the Rte 1 meetinghouse with the Hicksite branch until 1830 when they moved to Parkersville, where they erected a meetinghouse and burial ground. The current meetinghouse for Kennett meeting was built in 1958.
