The societyoffriends.org is maintained and operated by the Society of Friends of Caroline County Virginia. Which is organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, and educational purposes. The Caroline Religious Society of Friends was established in 1739. Known as Quakers, the Caroline Friends were pioneers in the County's frontier wilderness who were distinguished in the development of social and economic ideals significant to the county, state and nation.
Early social inventions such as economic development, banking, insurance and fixed prices for commodities were among those established within the County by the Caroline Friends. Their practices in social justice and human rights including the right of religious freedom, women's voting rights and condemnation of slaveholding, were among exemplary ideals they embraced.
