The Mary McLeod Bethune Home (also known as the Mary McLeod Bethune Foundation) is a historic home in Daytona Beach, Florida. It is located on the Bethune-Cookman University campus. It was designated a United States National Historic Landmark in 1974, for its association with the life of Mary McLeod Bethune, an educator and civil rights leader.[2][3]

The house itself "is of no architectural significance" and "is a simple two-story frame structure of a domestic style common to the 1920s."[3]

The house is operated as a museum. A brick structure added to the house serves as an archive of Mary McLeod Bethune papers.[3]
