Meeting House School building TRAVELLING DIRECTIONS:
The Stillwater Meeting House is located in Barnesville, Ohio, about 100 miles east of Columbus, and 75 miles west of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Both cities have major airports.
From I-70, take Exit 202 (Route 800) about six miles south to Barnesville.
Turn left (east) on Route 147 at the stoplight in the center of town.
Drive about 1.5 miles to the outskirts of town until you reach Roosevelt Road, where there is a large wooden sign on the right that reads "Stillwater Meeting of Friends, Home of Ohio Yearly Meeting (Cons.)."
Turn right on Roosevelt Road, and drive up the hill 1/2 mile to the stop sign.
The Meeting House is the very large brick building on the hilltop across the road directly in front of you. Drive in, park anywhere, and enter from the porch.
In warm weather we meet in the very large main Meeting Room that you can see through the porch windows.
In cold weather we meet inside in a smaller room. To find us then, enter the main room through the porch door to right of the brass historical plaque. Step into the kitchen through the unmarked gray door on your right, and enter the Meeting Room through the unmarked gray door on the other side of the kitchen.
Your children are especially welcome at our meetings, and infants are not expected to be quiet. There are craft activities at the children's First Day School, and children's books and magazines at the rear of the Meeting Rooms.
