Spring Friends Meeting House is a historic Quaker meeting house located at Snow Camp, Alamance County, North Carolina. The church was built in 1907, and is a small rectangular frame one-story gable-front building. It features Gothic Revival style lancet windows and a short, plain rectangular cupola with pyramidal roof. The adjacent contributing cemetery dates from the founding of the meeting, about 1751. It contains the graves of some of the earliest Quaker settlers in Alamance County, as well as the unmarked graves of approximately 25 American Revolutionary War soldiers killed in the 1781 Battle of Lindley's Mill.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1]
