Overview and metadata sections

Most Quakers use the term "meetinghouse" or "meeting house" to describe the building where they meet for worship. Most meetinghouses are plain, without steeples or adornment, and none are consecrated. Some 20th and 21st century Quakers, especially in the Evangelical Quaker tradition, prefer the term "church."

Here are listed, in approximate chronological order, collections of photographs of Quaker meetinghouses, stored at the Friends Historical Library of Swarthmore College. The collections were photographed or assembled by various individuals at various times. Most of the meeting houses are in the Eastern United States, but there are also some in the United Kingdom or other locations.

Individual collections have been preserved, and are identified by a PA number. They are listed in approximate chronological order.
