Biographical / Historical

Duanesburgh Monthly Meeting was established in 1806. In 1828 it divided into Hicksite and Orthodox branches. The Hicksite branch became an Executive Meeting in 1904. It ceased to meet regularly for several years before 1933, meeting only at the call of the clerk. In 1933 it began to meet regularly once more, and changed its name to Quaker Street Monthly Meeting, which body continues to the present day.
