Burlington Quaker Meeting House print, 1840s - $45 (the near Main Line, PA)
We've crafted it specifically to work with a standard, store bought frame or custom framed as you see fit.
One of a series of remarkable views of historic Burlington City along the Delaware River, drawn on stone by John Collins, 1847. Lithograph by T. Sinclair, Philadelphia. Nearly a decade ago we acquired and restored the whole series of Collins' works, and will present them here for your consideration over the next few weeks.
Built in 1783 to replace the original wooden hexagonal meeting house of 1683, the meeting house today has been restored and updated into a conference center and retreat. The meeting house looking very much as it did 230 years ago, with a modern facility in like style extending away from High Street with dorm room accommodations upstairs for 88 people, modern kitchen and conference spaces, etc.
The grave marker of Chief Ockanickon nestles against a 300 year old sycamore behind the meeting house as part of a large Quaker graveyard of both regular folks and those who have been important to the history of early New Jersey and later, important activists in the Abolitionist Movement.
