History of the Society of Friends Yearly Meeting

Friends, also called Quakers, had their origin as a Christian movement in seventeenth-century England. In the United States, the establishment of Quaker colonies was a common practice in the nation's westward movement of the middle-to-late 1800s. Yearly meetings of the Friends were held in various states. The first General Conference of the Yearly Meetings was held at Richmond, Indiana in 1887. In 1897, a uniform book of discipline and a closer union of the Yearly Meetings was instituted. The resulting Constitution and Discipline was adopted by New England, Wilmington, Indiana, and Kansas in 1900.
