The Bicentennial History of Cincinnati Friends Meeting (1815-2015)

Authored by Sabrina Darnowsky
Edition: 1

It began simply. Just a few Quaker families, settlers in a remote frontier town. As early as 1811, they began gathering in one another’s homes, silently awaiting the leading of the Spirit. They could not have known that they were starting a faith community that would touch the lives of people around the world.
This book provides an in-depth look at Cincinnati Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, how it has changed over the past two centuries, and how it fits into broader trends in Quaker history, Cincinnati history, and American history. From opposing slavery, to founding such local institutions as The Children’s Home, to advocating for peace and civil rights, the members of this meeting have made an impact that continues to be felt.
