Richland Meeting was located in today's West Virginia, in the vicinity of Star City. A committee to visit Friends "living in remote places" held a meeting in this location in 1797, leading to the opening of the meeting later that year. Friends here requested the meeting to be established at Redstone QM on 12/1/1800. A PM was held here 1801-1805, and a meeting house was built in 1802. Marriages were held here from 1801-1804. The meeting was laid down in 1805, as all members were planning to relocate to the state of Ohio.
