Meet Quaker History

Since 1682, the property located at 320 Arch Street has been actively and continuously used by Quakers and the community.

In 2011, Arch Street Meeting House became a National Historic Landmark and the Arch Street Meeting House Preservation Trust was formed. These two actions allowed Arch Street to commit to preserving Arch Street Meeting House and welcome the public in for programming to learn more about Quaker history.
