250th Anniversary of the Crosswicks Meeting House
November 4, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Come join us for an afternoon of celebration as we mark the semiquincentennial of the Crosswicks Friends Meeting House, which was built beginning in 1773. We’ll have music, exhibits, presentations, a visit by John Woolman himself (who was married in our previous meeting house in 1749), and a big birthday cake! This event is co-sponsored by the Chesterfield Township Historical Society, who will open their museum (in the 1831 Crosswicks Orthodox Meeting House) after our program. This event is free and open to everyone, and it will be a great opportunity for non-Quakers in our region to get to know some of the history and traditions of West Jersey Quakers and our current Meeting family.
