Asa and Caroline Wing House is a historic home located at Mexico in Oswego County, New York. It was probably built in the 1830s and is a one and one half story frame settlement period structure. It has a fieldstone foundation, post and beam construction, plank walls, and gable roof. Asa and Caroline Wing purchased the home in 1847. It is a well documented location used in harboring fugitive slaves. Specifically, from December 24-27, 1850, Asa Wing harbored seven members of the Thompson family in their flight to Canada.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.[1]
