    card reads: "Quaker migration from New England and southeastern Pennsylvania in the 1750s led to new meetings in the Carolina piedmont. New Garden Meeting, named for a meeting in southeastern Pennsylvania, was established in 1754. Its second meetinghouse, built in 1791, is pictured ... in an 1860 lithograph by John Collins. It was demolished in 1876. Women's and men's meetings for church business were segregated by movable shutters in a central partition. The latch plate exhibited here, which shows the date of the building's construction, came from the door in the partition."
