Where

This former Quaker Meeting House was built around 1809. Quakers had moved to Dutchess County in generation past because they sought less settled areas, where they could practice their religion without being disturbed or perseucted and live lives closer to nature and God. At this site in LaGrangeville, they built this shed-roofed, one-and-a-half-story frame structure sided in clapboard with moderately pitched gable roof. It would serve as a meeting house up until around the 1940’s when membership dwindled and the structure was left to deteriorate.
