Biographical / Historical
Friends Meeting of Washington was established as an independent meeting on Florida Avenue in the District of Columbia in 1930. It provided a convenient place of worship for then President Herbert Hoover and his wife, Lou Henry Hoover; Mrs. Hoover was greatly involved with the creation of the meeting and the construction of the meeting house. In 1944, Friends Meeting of Washington affiliated with both the Orthodox and Hicksite Baltimore Yearly Meetings. The older Washington Monthly Meeting, referred to as I-Street and Orthodox in origin, merged with College Park Friends in 1956 to form Adelphi Meeting.
