the best thing is that I googled more about Quakers afterward to learn more of the beliefs and understand why they were excluded from many communities during this period. They were integral to the development of many things and this house speaks to that.

If you have an All Access Pass from the Whaling Museum you get free admittance here. It's a very austere place, interesting to see how Quakers had their "meetings" (church services). There's also a little museum in the back. Currently they have amazing needlepoint work...More

We came here as part of an off-season visit on a tour sponsored by the Whaling Museum. The plain, simple old building and its meeting hall epitomize the Quaker worship of an earlier time and worth a visit for anyone interested in that era.

The building was built in 1838 and it appears to have been well maintained. They allowed me to go to the balcony for photos. There is a bathroom in case you were wondering.More

The Meeting House itself is just that. Not much to see or do and will take all of 5 minutes. But the Historical Library adjacent has a great little gallery on the quaint characters and customs of early Nantucket residents. Fun and entertaining, but most...More
