Waynesville Friends Home Photograph Collection

Identifier: FMS-73

Scope and Contents

The Waynesville Friends Home Collection consists of approximately 150 photographs and images formerly kept in photograph albums in the Friends Home in Waynesville, Ohio. About two-thirds of the photographs are identified. The Friends Home in Waynesville opened in 1905 as a residence for elderly Friends. Indiana Yearly Meeting (Hicksite/Friends General Conference) built and still owns the facility. Most of the identified photographs are of Friends who were members of the Hicksite Indiana Yearly Meeting during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Some are of Friends from Philadelphia, New York, and parts east. There are a few images of historic Quaker figures like George Fox and William Penn.
