1 box 0.5 linear feet
Call no.: MS 902 M5337

Friends in Middletown, Connecticut, began holding meetings under the care of Hartford Monthly Meeting by 1943 and were set off as a monthly meeting of their own in 1956. Drawing heavily from the faculty and staff at Wesleyan College, at least in their early years, the meeting is part of Connecticut Valley Quarter.

Although not quite complete, the records of Middletown Monthly Meeting document nearly 25 years of a Quaker meeting in the lower Connecticut Valley, beginning in the mid-1980s.
