Origins
Members of the Religious Society of Friends — many from North Carolina — settled and named the area in the early 1820s.  In 1828 Duck Creek Monthly Meeting set up Spiceland Preparative Meeting. Spiceland's first log meetinghouse was erected in 1828.  Before this, Friends worshipped in a log barn and, at least for its first meeting, under the trees in 1824.

The meeting set up an academy in 1826 and operated it until it was closed in 1921 and taken over by the township.

In 1833 Duck Creek set off Spiceland as a monthly meeting, and a frame one-story meetinghouse replaced the log structure.  The present Italianate brick meetinghouse was built just north of the frame building in 1874.
