Siloam Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in Vineland, in the U.S. state of New Jersey.

The cemetery was established in 1864 on a plot of land donated by Charles K. Landis, the founder of Vineland. A chapel was constructed in 1918, and is located in the center of one of the original sections of the cemetery. Many local residents, some of whom were nationally prominent, are buried there.
