Learn About This Historic Building And Celebrate It's 300 Years of Continuous Worship By George A. Crispin & Carleton C. Crispin To any and all who are aware of the impact of history upon the present, or who are simply interested in history for its own sake, a video has been made by Carleton Crispin consisting of a tour by George Crispin of the Woodbury Friends (Quaker) Meeting which was completed in 1715, and thus is celebrating its 300th anniversary. The meetinghouse was planned by John Cooper, as architect, and author of the first State Constitution, who lived in Woodbury, while on the Board of Trustees sat Henry Wood, grandson of Henry Wood, founder of Woodbury Friends Meeting. The building was standing 61 years before the Declaration of Independence and 71 years before the writing of the U. S. Constitution. The video shows why the building was built where and it was, why there are two layers of graves in certain areas, why some grave markers face east and west and others north and south. How the interior looked in 1715 is made clear by the video. How the building was constructed is demonstrated by the third floor timber construction. One can view the video in a soft chair with a cup of coffee in hand.
