Upper Greenwich Friends
Mickleton, Gloucester County
The Quaker meetinghouse in Mickleton is unusual in that there was a
chimney and a basement, unique in early Friends' meetinghouses, as far
as I can determine. This was built in 1799 and is on the National Register
of Historic Places. The building is now sort of T-shaped, as an annex
was added about the turn of the century.
I suspect the skirt porch was also a later
addition. It is common to many of the Quaker meetinghouses, but the
majority adopted the small pent roof over the entrances.
