T. Canby Jones Meetinghouse

Jones MeetinghouseAttached to the north side of the Quaker Heritage Center is the T. Canby Jones Meetinghouse, which is named in honor of the prominent Quaker theologian and longtime religion and philosophy professor, Thomas Canby Jones, who served on the College’s faculty from 1955 through 1987. The Meetinghouse is part of the Boyd Cultural Arts Center, which opened in fall 2005. The facility was specially dedicated honoring Jones in fall 2008. Styled like traditional Quaker meetinghouses, it features a simple configuration of pews pointing toward the center of the space coming from three directions. It is regularly used for Campus Wednesday Worship, faculty meetings, QHC programs and by Campus Friends Meeting.
