The historic old meeting house is one of the oldest standing structures in the USA used continually for worship.

It is lovingly kept in perfect condition. It is open often, allowing for visitors to enter and experience the beauty of the building and the grace of many Quaker founding families. The peacefulness if lovely.

This is the oldest frame building used continuously for religous worship in the US. It was built in 1682 and still has services twice a week. It is part of a complex that sits back from the road.

The original meeting house dates to 1685 or thereabouts, and the "new" meeting house was buit in the nineteenth century. As you look at the woodwork in the older building, keep in mind that tools...
