Biographical / Historical

Buffalo Niagara Friends Group was established as a meeting for worship in 1939. In 1940 it became a United monthly meeting under Scipio United Quarterly Meeting. By the early 1950's, the meeting name did not always include Niagara, and Buffalo Meeting was used exclusively after 1953. This meeting remains active.
