Buildings: Quaker (Religious Society of Friends) Meeting House

Located on Pennington Terrace, North Adelaide, the Quaker Meeting House is one of the oldest religious buildings in South Australia still standing. The first meeting of Quakers in South Australia was held at the home of John Barton and Bridget Hack on 3 December 1837. By 1839 the Quakers in South Australia required a suitable meeting place. To this end, Quakers in London purchased a wooden framed building with a verandah and shipped it to South Australia. Hack donated the land in North Adelaide as the site for the Meeting House. It was erected in 1840. The Meeting House is still used today.
