A Brief History of Quaker Hill

       The main building, Evans House, was built in 1855 by Isaac Evans as a wedding present for his bride, Mary Ann Buffam. They had four children, and their home was a center of warm hospitality over the years. The house stayed in the family until the Depression. It was purchased back by their grandson, Isaac Woodard, in 1940, who planned for it to be used as a regional conference center.

       During the Second World War, the house was used for refugee resettlement, and also housed a day camp and a Rural Life Association. A large new dormitory, staff housing and a kitchen/dining area were added in the late 1960's.
