Alexandria Monthly Meeting (Society of Friends : Woodlawn, Va.)

 

Alexandria Monthly Meeting was set off from Fairfax Monthly Meeting by Fairfax Quarterly Meeting in 8mo 1802. The first meeting was held in 10mo in Alexandria. In 1828, the meeting affiliated with the Hicksite branch of Friends; Orthodox members were attached to Indian Spring Preparative Meeting. The meeting met alternately at Alexandria and Woodlawn starting in 1847, and at Alexandria, Woodlawn, and Washington, D.C. (I Street) starting in 1882. The Alexandria Meeting House was sold in 1885, as membership became centered in the other two meeting locations. Since the creation of the Florida Avenue Meeting (Friends Meeting of Washington, D.C.) in 1930, Alexandria Monthly Meeting has met solely in Woodlawn.
