Newton Friends' Meetinghouse is a historic Quaker meeting house at 808 Cooper Street in Camden, Camden County, New Jersey, United States.

It was built in 1824 as an extremely simple "Quaker clapboard" structure in the typically subdued style of Quaker meeting houses. It was remodeled in 1885 by architect Wilson Eyre, Jr. in the sometimes-extravagant Queen Anne Revival style, though this expression of the style is still very subdued.[2] The meetinghouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.
