Our Address: Burlington Friends Meeting, 173 North Prospect Street, Burlington, Vermont 05401.
Burlington Friends Meeting House is on land that has served as a site of meeting and exchange among indigenous peoples for thousands of years and is the home of the Western Abenaki People. We honor, recognize and respect these peoples, especially the Abenaki, as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we gather. We are guests in this land. We need to respect and help protect the lands within our use.
The meeting house is located east of “The Old North End” of Burlington, Vermont, and a few blocks north of the campus of the University of Vermont. Once a carriage house, the Meeting House can be found at the end of the driveway of 177 North Prospect Street. At the entrance to the driveway there is an historic marker identifying the property as having belonged to Mary Fletcher, who helped establish what is now the UVM Medical Center (formerly Fletcher-Allen Hospital). The larger building at 177 N. Prospect St., the “Bassett House,” is partly used by the Friends Meeting and partly occupied by private apartments.
Contributions should be sent to the above address, attn Treasurer.
