Learn About This Historic Building And Celebrate it's 300 Years of Continuous Worship with a video tour by Dr. 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, this video tour is for you! Woodbury Friends (Quaker) Meeting was completed in 1715, and celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2015. The meetinghouse was planned by John Cooper, an architect and author of the first State Constitution, who lived in Woodbury. 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 it was, why there are two layers of graves in certain areas, and why some grave markers face east and west and others north and south. How the interior looked in 1715 is made clear, and how the building was constructed is demonstrated by the third floor timber construction. One can enjoy a personalized tour of this historic and wonderful building from the comfort of your own home, in a soft chair with a cup of coffee in hand.
