Quaker Hill Historic Preservation Foundation
The Quaker Hill Historic Preservation Foundation has dedicated itself since 1992 to the preservation and education of the rich history of the Quaker Hill Historic District. We offer tours, field trips, presentations, workshops and speakers on all historical facets of the neighborhood from its founding in 1735 by notable Quaker families such as the Shipleys, Tatnalls, Canbys, Grubbs and Bringhursts to the beautiful architecture reflecting Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate and Victorian construction and it's enduring legacy as the "Last Stop To Freedom" on the Underground Railroad where Harriet Tubman joined forces with local Quaker, merchant and station master Thomas Garrett who ushered upwards to 2,700 fugitives to freedom. Highlights in include the Cathedral of St. Peter and the Wilmington Friends Meeting Hou
