Historic Meetinghouse Celebration
OPEN HOUSE with tour, brief presentation and refreshments.
Date: Sunday, November 12, 2017
Time: 1:30 pm
Location: 437 South Pitney Road, Galloway, NJ 08205
Atlantic City Area Meeting is proud to announce the RESTORATION of its historic 1828 Meetinghouse. Join Friends for a tour and brief presentation, followed by refreshments.
Built in Woodstown, New Jersey, this beautiful old Meetinghouse was home to several Quaker groups but fell into disuse in the 1960s. It was purchased by Historic Smithville in 1969 and moved to Galloway Township. From there it was moved to its current Pitney Road location in 1987.
The complete renovation accomplished over the past few years ensures that this antique building will be available to future generations.
