Frances Willard House was the home of Frances Willard and her family and was the longtime headquarters of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union.

The house's south half was built in 1865 by Willard's father in Gothic Revival style, and enlarged in 1878. It was Willard's home from its construction until her death in 1898. Her will bequeathed the house to the Temperance Union, which in 1900 moved its headquarters from Chicago to the house. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965.citation|title=PDFlink| [http://pdfhost.focus.nps.gov/docs/NHLS/Text/66000318.pdf National Register of Historic Places Inventory-Nomination: Frances Willard House / "Rest Cottage"] |396 KB|date=November 29, 1975 |author=Blanche Higgins Schroer and S.
