1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse

160 County Road 8
Farmington, NY 14425

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. It stood at the crossroads –symbolically as well as geographically–of activism for African American rights, women’s rights, and Native American rights. While the Meetinghouse undergoes restoration, be sure to check out the events they host around Ontario County and the Finger Lakes as they continue to explore justice and equality.
