The Meetinghouse of the Milwaukee Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) was built in 1984 along the Milwaukee River on land entrusted to us by Anita Koenen. The original design by Willis and Lilian Leenhouts, modified for affordability by Charles Yoder, was expanded in 2000 by Autumn Blakely.
This building was built in 1984 along the Milwaukee River. The Meetinghouse, Koenen Land Preserve, and their use reflect Quaker values. Guided tours are available, including: Compost Kids composting site, community gardens begun by Anita Koenen, the land preserve with its native species, LifeWays Early Childhood Center classrooms, the worship room and library, along with informational displays of current activities and historical interest.
