Dedicated to the study, preservation, and publication of material relating to the history of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)

Founded in Philadelphia in 1873, Friends Historical Association has become an organization that is international in membership and interests, and which anyone, Friend or not, is invited to join. 



We gather for our Annual Meeting in the Fall, and a historical pilgrimage in the Spring to an area associated with the history of Quakerism.

In May 2016, FHA members and friends headed to central and western New York state to visit areas connected with powerful religious revivals and reform movements for equal rights.
