In 1680, after facing challenges from Puritan authorities, Quakers in Dover, New Hampshire, succeeded in establishing a Meeting in the city. In 1768, the Dover Quakers built their third meetinghouse, which remains standing today and is the oldest religious structure in Dover. In 1912, due to declining Quaker populations, the Meeting closed. It reopened in 1955, and continues to meet. The Dover Monthly Meeting exists under the Dover Quarterly Meeting and the New England Yearly Meeting.
This collection is comprised of the records of Dover Monthly Meeting.
The Dover Monthly Meeting records were donated to Special Collections, Haverford College in 1947 by Annie E. Pinkham.
