The Conanicut Friends Meetinghouse is a historic Quaker meeting house in Jamestown, Rhode Island in the Windmill Hill Historic District.[2]

The structure was built in 1786 to replace the original meeting house destroyed by the British prior to the Battle of Rhode Island. The building was added to the National Historic Register in 1973 and is still used during the summer. Jamestown also contains the Old Friends Archeological Site nearby.
