The 1816 Farmington Meetinghouse
As the site of Genesee Yearly Meeting of Friends, the 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse was a national crucible for major reform movements in the nineteenth century.
It stood at the crossroads, symbolically as well as geographically, of activism for African American rights, women’s rights, and Native American rights.
When a windstorm blew the east wall of the Meetinghouse off in February 2006 a grassroots coalition of concerned citizens organized to preserve and restore this important piece of American history.
Under the auspices of the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Foundation of Seneca Falls the coalition acquired the Meetinghouse and reached out locally and nationally to acquire the expertise and financing to restore and preserve the Meetinghouse.
Now, through the generosity, dedication and efforts of many groups and individuals the 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse has been stabilized and moved to its new site across the road. It is on the path to restoration for its 200th anniversary in 2016.
