Greeley House is a historic home located at Chappaqua, Westchester County, New York. It was built about 1820 and served as the home of Horace Greeley (1811 – 1872) from 1864 to 1872. It was originally a typical small farmhouse, but expanded to five bays in the mid-19th century. It features a full-width verandah, topped by a railed in, unroofed balcony, and decorative door frames and cornices over the windows. It is the only remaining Greeley home at Chappaqua, the other two ("House in the Woods" and "Hillside House") having burned down.[2] The house now serves as home to the New Castle Historical Society.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
