Details

Built in the late 17th century by an early community of Quakers, the landmark is the oldest house of worship in New York City, one of three of the oldest continuously active sites of religious activity in North America, and the second oldest Quaker meeting house in the nation. Members of the meeting house were associated with the early struggle for religious freedom in America, support for the abolitionist cause, and establishing the area's first school. Tours of the meeting house and its burial ground are available on Sundays.
