This is the original meeting room built in 1784. Up to 200 can gather in this room, which is rich in Quaker history and simplicity. The bench seats are cushioned, there are windows on 2 sides and a balcony with rising tiers of seats. The acoustics are good – speakers do not need a microphone, although there is a lectern and microphone available.
The Ockanickon Room
This spacious, multi-purpose hall can accommodate up to 120 people for dining, meetings, live music, dancing, exercise and more. Arrange and use it as you’d like. There are both 6-foot round and 6-foot rectangular tables for use as well as two 11-foot long hardwood tables for groups, materials or buffets. With its hardwood floor and acoustic-tile ceiling, voice is neither dampened nor echoes. It is lined by windows on two, off-street sides, providing quiet and privacy. Four window seats provide cozy areas for conversation or quiet reflection. The view of the park-like graveyard includes the burial site of Chief Ockanickon of the Lenni-Lenape tribe as well as a 400-year-old sycamore tree.
Boardroom and Hendrickson Room
These two rooms provide a more intimate setting. The Boardroom can seat up to 15 people, 12 of them around an 11-foot hardwood table. Windows on 2 sides allow participants within to be connected to activity outside the room.
The Hendrickson Room is a perfect setting for a personal discussion or quiet time. It can seat up to 7 people, 3 of them on a couch and 1 in an armchair.
Each room rents separately.
The large commercial kitchen is fully equipped to meet the food service needs of each group. It contains a commercial stove, two ovens, a steamer, microwave, restaurant-size refrigerator and separate freezer and dishwasher. There is also a number of small appliances, cookware, bakeware, serveware and white Corning Pyroceram dinnerware. Use of the kitchen with utilities is available through separate arrangements at the time of rental. Here are links to caterers and wedding vendors.
There is an elevator to the 2nd and 3rd floors.
This room is part of half of the balcony of the original meeting room built in 1784. This unique area with rising tiers of seats is designed for lectures, concerts, presentations and performances. It accommodates up to 100 people.
Second and Third Floor Dormitories
The second and third floors provide dormitory-style sleeping facilities for overnight rentals and can sleep 88 people. On each floor, there is a large dormitory, semi-private room, bathrooms and showers. Each large dormitory can be divided by pocket doors into smaller sleeping areas — two on the 2nd floor and three on the 3rd. Each smaller area has its own access to the hallway. Across the hall from each large dormitory is the semi-private room, which includes a small sitting area. Also across the hall are separate men’s and women’s bathrooms and showers, 2 to 3 of each. Unique to the third floor because of its dormers are 8 single beds, good for those afraid of hitting their head on the top bunk or who get up often in the middle of the night. Bring your own sheets, pillows, blankets, towels, toiletries and perhaps a bathrobe.
There is a chair lift for wheelchair access to the basement.
Also for rent, the Youth Recreation Room is a large, open space that is perfect for arts and crafts or youth get-togethers. Arrange and use it as you’d like. It includes 2 round craft tables with folding chairs, foosball table, air hockey table, and lounge area with 2 couches and 2 armchairs, as well as a utility sink and a bathroom.
