Chichester Meetinghouse 250th Anniversary
on September 22, 2019 - Click Here
Welcome to the home page of Chichester Quaker Meetinghouse in Boothwyn, Pennsylvania, USA. This meetinghouse is the historical remnant of one of the first Quaker communities in William Penn's original land grant in the late 17th century. Here you will learn some of the background of the people who brought to the United States a religious experience that provided the underpinnings of our country's political life. The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers are often referred to as "Friends") are very active in the Philadelphia area today but this meetinghouse no longer houses a Quaker community. However there is an active "docent" living on the grounds who provides tours and will answer your questions about the current building, the cemetery, and the history of the community who worshiped here over 300 years ago.
