The Burlington Quaker Meeting House and Center for Conference is is a multi-use, day and overnight gathering place for company, community, educational and spiritual events such as conferences, weddings, retreats, meetings, family occasions, reunions, and above all, enlightenment.

The first Meeting House here, started in 1683, was hexagonal in design. An addition was built to the front of it in 1696. The present Meeting House was built in front of the site of the hexagonal Meeting House in 1784. Lenape Chief Ockanickon and notable Quakers are buried in the graveyard. The oldest dated marker appears to be “D.B. 1726.”  The Center for Conference was added in 1995.
Quakers, or Friends, are persons who belong to Meetings — religious bodies that as a group are known as the Religious Society of Friends. Quakerism began in England about 1650 in the aftermath of the Protestant Reformation. Seeking spiritual reality, early Friends found that they could experience God directly in their lives without benefit of clergy or liturgy or steepled church. The Burlington Friends invite you to join us on Sundays at 10 a.m. for forty-five minutes of quiet reflection.
You don’t have to be a Quaker to hold all or part(s) of your event in our venue. The wheelchair-accessible facility comprises a ground-floor hall for 120 people, commercial kitchen, boardroom for 15 people,  and a personal discussion room for 7 people; a 2-story 1784 Meeting room for 200 people; 2nd floor 1784 seminar room for 100 people; and a 2-floor, 7-room dormitory of 88 beds as well as bathrooms and showers.
