   Photographic Inventory

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.
