The Chew-Powell House is a historic building in the Blenheim section of Gloucester Township, Camden County, New Jersey, United States. It was built in 1688 by James Whitall. The Chew-Powell-Wallens Burying Ground, next to the house, is considered to be the oldest cemetery in the township, and it reportedly contains the remains of early settlers, soldiers of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars and Leni Lenape Native Americans.[3]
