Almost two hundred years ago, my Quaker ancestors travelled by boat and wagon from Nantucket to attend meetings here. This was my first visit and the strength and quiet beauty of the building touched me. I was not there for meeting on Sunday but arrived late one autumn afternoon. It was built in l810. The weathered boards and chimneys told... More

Quaker Meeting House is a little hard to find. Stick with it--you'll be pleased you did. Oldest continuous Meeting House in North America. Very lovely setting with peaceful grave yard in the back. Visit on Sunday and take part in a Quaker Meeting waiting in silence for presence of Divine. Very peaceful and very welcoming.

Recommended. As one of us was born and raised as a Quaker, this was in interesting stop for us. We found what all peoples find in the presence of these simple meeting houses: simplicity, unpretentiousness, and an air of openness, suggesting how those who believe manifest their simple, one-to-one, relationship with God, as they conceive it. These buildings, suggesting the... More

I just had to come here as I visit Quaker meeting houses where ever I go. The old meeting houses are the best as one feels you have stepped into history and there are familiar colonial names everywhere. This is a place to stop by for a moment of peace during the summer bustle on the Cape.

This is the first time that I have seen headstones about the size of a brick with only numbers on them. Each is listed in the Friends written records but, the person buried wishes only to be remembered as insignificant. The facinating history of the Quakers should be looked into before coming here so that you can experience the peacefulness... More

Visited this as I am a descendant of John Wing, father of Stephen, Daniel and John Wing - all of whom were either Quaker members or sympathizers. The former two appear to have been members of the first Quaker meeting, and John may not have joined, but he moved away and may have practiced the Quaker faith on his own... More

This is the old meeting - actually a prepartory meeting at this point. One of three on Cape Cod, the others are in Falmouth and Yarmouth. Before the construction of Route 6, they may have had a meeting near a boulder right in path of the road, later dynamited in the construction of this highway. You probably will not hear... More
