   Photographic Inventory

Newton Friends Meetinghouse
Camden, Camden County

Founded in 1801, built in 1828 and enlarged in 1885. The pent roof over the entrance is typical Quaker, but the round attachment on the west side, added later, is unusual.
     Compare this to the Friends meetinghouse in Seaville, by Quakers who moved into the Cape May area from Massachusetts, a dozen years earlier, to see the basic consistency of Quaker architecture.
