The Amos Morse House is a historic house at 77 North Street in Foxborough, Massachusetts. The two-story wood frame house was built in 1803 for his children, Amos Jr. and Sarah. One of its ells was used by the Morses as a shop for producing straw hats, a significant industry in early 19th-century Foxborough.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986,[1] when it was still in the hands of Morse descendants.[2]
