Jericho Friends Meeting House Complex is a historic Quaker meeting house complex located at 6 Old Jericho Turnpike in Jericho, Nassau County, New York. The complex consists of the meetinghouse (1788), former Friends' schoolhouse (1793), a large gable roofed shed (ca. 1875), and the Friends' cemetery. The meeting house is a two story, gable roofed timber framed structure clad in wood shingles.[2] One of the people who helped build the meeting house was preacher Elias Hicks (1748 – 1830), who is buried at the cemetery within the complex.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1]
