Fishertown Quaker Museum

The idea of creating a Quaker museum in
Western Pennsylvania had been discussed by
several interested persons. This idea quickly 
evolved into the concept of preserving this 
historic meetinghouse under the auspices of
Dunnings Creek Friends Meeting as well as
opening the building as a museum reflecting
the development and history of Quakerism
in Bedford County.  

Museum is now open for the summer.  Sat and 

Sunday 1-4
