Northam Memorial Chapel and Gallup Memorial Gateway, also known as Cedar Hill Chapel and Gateway, are a historic chapel and gateway in the Cedar Hill Cemetery at 453 Fairfield Avenue in Hartford, Connecticut, USA. The chapel is a Gothic Revival stone structure, with a slate roof and a small bell tower. It was designed by George Keller and built in 1882, funded by gifts from the Charles Northam, a West Indies merchant, and other members of his family. The gateway consists of a two-leaf gate with columns and curved flanking walls, along with a small waiting room on the left side of the gate and an office to the right. This complex was built in 1889, and named in honor of Julia Gallup, wife of David Gallup, a local businessman, banker, and judge. This collection of buildings form a cohesive and complementary addition to the rural cemetery design of Jacob Weidenmann, who laid out Cedar Hill Cemetery.[2]

The properties were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
