Enjoyed an afternoon walking the grounds and enjoying the history of this hidden gem. Children enjoyed learning about it and looking at the dates and names on headstones. Buildings are so rich with information and history.

I've been here twice for worship--from a non-Quaker background--and OK, I'm kinda of a church dork, but I really don't think there's a better way to experience a historical worship space than through attending worship. The building is beautiful (but not air-conditioned, do note!), and...More
