As the site of Genesee Yearly Meeting of Friends, the 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse was a national crucible for major reform movements in the nineteenth century. Symbolically as well as geographically, it stood at the crossroads of activism for African American rights, women’s rights, and Native American rights. Part of the National Park Services' Underground Railroad Network to Freedom, the 1816 Farmington Quaker Meeting House Museum has a stamp for National Park Service passports.
