Quaker Meeting House Wales Old Structure near Original Bryn Mawr Farm with Pennsylvania connection


Tyddyn y Garreg Friends' Meeting House, Tabor, Dolgellau

The Quakers established this meeting house and burial ground in 1792. By 1845, Quakers in the area had either emigrated or died and the meeting was closed. The building and burial ground were then purchased by the Welsh Independents and became Tabor Chapel. The burial ground is still used but none of the headstones are of Quaker origin as the Friends did not allow graves to be marked with headstones until 1850. From John Lucas site
