About this space

Our largest space, the Meeting Room reflects historic Quaker traditions and is elegant in its simplicity. Long poplar benches are hand-hewn as is the surrounding walnut wainscoting.

With a ceiling height of 17 feet, the space features windows overlooking our gardens. Padded benches can be arranged to best suit your event (pillows shown in some photos are not included). The Meeting Room opens onto the east terrace and gardens, rented separately. Guests may enter and exit this space through the east gardens or via our beautiful lobby.

No food or drink other than water is allowed in this space.
