Gwynedd Friends Meeting

Gwynedd Monthly Meeting is a part of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), a faith that emerged in England as a new denomination during the religious turmoil of the mid-1600s.

Gwynedd Monthly Meeting was founded in 1699 by a group of Welsh Quakers who had come to the area the year before. Meetings for Worship have been held in our present location since a log meetinghouse was built on the site in 1700. A more permanent stone building was completed in 1712 and the present meetinghouse was built in 1823. In 1998, a large renovation and expansion project provided the Gwynedd Friends community - which includes our active preschool - with ample room for work and play. The existing schoolhouse across the parking lot was built in 1857 and presently houses our Kindergarten.
