The Burlington Friends Meeting is located in Burlington at 173 North Prospect Street, near the University of Vermont and UVM Medical Center. Our Meeting House and adjacent Bassett House are accessible by the Burlington bus system. Our buildings are simple and beautiful, surrounded by an acre of gardens and trees. They have several attractive rooms suitable for a variety of events.

The property includes two structures built in 1850. What had been a carriage barn is now our Meeting House, which is fully handicapped-accessible. It features a naturally lit open space with comfortable chairs for 60.  The entry area has a sliding wall that can subdivide it into two spaces.  The entry also has a hospitality center with sink, microwave, mini-fridge, dishwasher, and coffee and tea service.  There are two restrooms, one of which is accessible. 

The Bassett House was originally the home of Mary Martha Fletcher, for whom Burlington’s library (and previously, its hospital) is named.  It features a full community kitchen, an intimate wood-paneled library that can accommodate 8-12 people, two spacious meeting rooms, one of which is large enough for 30-40 people, and 2 restrooms, one of which is fully accessible.

We just completed many improvements to the Bassett House to make it accessible. We’ve added new meeting spaces and bathrooms and fully renovated the kitchen.
