Quaker Graveyard Tour

Quaker Graveyard
Chappaqua Friends' Meetinghouse
420 Quaker Road

About 1747, pioneer John Reynolds donated two acres of land to the recently formed “Shapequa” friends’ meeting, to serve as a badly needed burying ground and the site of a future meetinghouse. Like the meetinghouse, it has remained in use ever since. Although burials largely ceased in the 2oth century, a memory wall continues to commemorate deceased meeting members.
