Princeton Friends Meeting

Pictures of Princeton Friends Meeting's Stonybook Meetinghouse taken during my December visit. The meeting house was first built in 1726 and rebuilt in 1760. It's a lovely old building and each December morning when I have visited there has been a welcoming fire in the fire place.

Chelle, thanks for sharing these... they're better than any pictures I've taken of the interior of the Meetinghouse.

I like these photos very much. They make me miss the architecture of the east coast. Everything feels so new out here!

I'd like to invite you to visit my blog. It would be great if you could comment on today's post. Thanks!
