The Arch Street Quakers Meeting House

The Arch Street Quakers Meeting House, also known at The Arch Street Friends Meeting House, was designed in 1803 to 1804 by Owen Biddle, Junior and constructed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

A quote from William Penn is posted inside of the hall of the Arch Street meeting house:

No person who shall confess and acknowledge one Almight God…and that professeth him or herself obliged in conscience to live peaceable under the civil government, shall in any case be molested or prejudiced for his or her conscientious persuasion or practice, nor shall he or she at any time be compelled to frequent or maintain any religious worship place or ministry whatever.

–William Penn, the Great Law of December 7, 1682
