Barnegat Friends Meetinghouse
Barnegat, Ocean County

The unusual meetinghouse is in the Quaker tradition, although the L-shape of it today represents a later addition which is certainly atypical.
     The Barnegat Friends were organized in 1767, and services have apparently been held continuously since that date on this site. This building represents a rebuilding of the structure that was badly damaged in a hurricane. It is located on East Bay Avenue and Bordsall Street.
