1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse

Farmington, NY

The historic 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse was slated for demolition after it was badly damaged by a storm in February 2006. Underground Railroad historian Judith Wellman is leading a community effort to restore the building and preserve its legacy. As a crucible of several national reform movements, the 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse hosted debates over freedom and equality for women, African Americans and Seneca Indians. National reformers associated with this meetinghouse include William Lloyd Garrison, Lucretia Mott, Frederick Douglass, William Wells Brown, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony.
Your donations will be used to restore the 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse.
