Solebury Meeting is located on Sugan Road and was built by members of the Buckingham Meeting when the numbers warranted a new meeting house. Members of the Buckingham Meeting had agreed to give up slave ownership in 1776. In response to the abduction of Big Ben in 1844, local abolitionists held a series of anti-slavery lectures in Buckingham, Solebury, and Lambertville. One meeting was held at Blackfan’s School (now the caretaker’s house of the meeting), and an advertisement said that Reverend Samuel Aaron was expected to attend. He exemplified the radicalism of the abolitionist movement. He was active in the Underground Railroad at his home in Norristown and was also outspoken in public about abolition.
