George Fox founded the Religious Society of Friends in England during the seventeenth century. In the U.S. the society, commonly called Quakers, opposed slavery during the nineteenth century, and it opposed war and violence throughout its existence. In Grand Traverse County, Friends organized in the Long Lake area in 1880. In 1892 lumberman Perry Hannah donated this site to the society for a meetinghouse, which was completed in 1894.
