The first Quakers to settle in Ballitore arrived there from Yorkshire in 1865. The renowned Ballitore school was established by Abraham Shackleton in 1726, and the Quaker Meeting House still stands. The Quaker Museum is housed in the home of Mary Leadbeater, who carried out the duties of post mistress while at the same time writing numerous books, including the famous Annals of Ballitore which describes the lives of the ordinary people in the village over the period 1766 to 1824. The museum contains a collection of artifacts on the Quaker settlement in Ballitore.
