The Babcock-Shattuck House, also known as Jewish War Veterans Post, is a prominent home at the corner of East Genesee and Westcott Streets in Syracuse, New York. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.[1][2]

The Queen Anne style house was built in the mid-1890s to be the home of Dr. Archer D. Babcock, a founding member of the Crouse-Irving Hospital. It was Babcock's home until 1913.[3]

Beginning during World War II, it was a post of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America. They converted the second floor into a large meeting room. During the tenure of this organization, the house played an important role in the Jewish community of Syracuse.[3]

The house is currently undergoing renovations.[4]
