Quaker Meeting House (Peabody Essex Museum)

Quaker Meeting House (Peabody Essex Museum)

Currently a part of the Peabody Essex Museum the first Quaker Meeting House (Federal Garden area) in Salem, Massachusetts was built around 1688. The current building, erected in 1865 to resemble a Post-Medieval or First Period structure, is a reconstruction of the Quaker Meeting House and may contain some of the original timber framing. It is most interesting today as a very early example of an architectural re-creation.
