GEORGE FOX STONE

This stone marks the site where George Fox, founder of the Religious Society of Friends in England, preached in 1672. The sermon was given in John Bowne’s garden, under two large oak trees. These trees were later named “The Fox Oaks.” The stone marks the site of the trees, and is located across Bowne Street from Bowne House in front of the apartment building at 36-40 Bowne Street.
