Here's a great summary of how Quakerism started, by Max Carter of Guilford College


At our recent living room conversation we looked at the plat maps showing where the original meetinghouses were - the school houses at Cedar Run and Long Lake - and photos of them. We studied plat maps showing Pleasant Grove and the Round Top schoolhouse where Levi Pennington taught, just outside Maple City.

We looked at the Garfield Township plat map that shows the Lone Pine schoolhouse, the predecessor of Traverse City Friends Meeting, and the nearby farm where evangelist Amos Kenworthy lived.


Worship with us!
