2. Site of the Quaker Meetinghouse Marker
The site where the Quaker Meetinghouse stood from the 1820s to the early 1900s is located at 114 Turkey Hill Road. The story behind the marker reflects the hostility that greeted the Society of Friends in Puritan Massachusetts and specifically in our Town, where, nevertheless, they persisted.
