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.

This year, on November 11, 2017, you are invited to a luncheon and panel discussion on abolitionist, a women's rights activist, and a social reformer, Lucretia Mott. These events are open to the public, but you must pre-register for lunch. Our annual meeting will follow.
