Bacon-Merchant-Moss House is a historic home located at Lockport in Niagara County, New York. It is a Federal style stone structure built in 1832. A narrow attic crawlspace is believed to have been used to hide slaves escaping to Canada on the Underground Railroad. The YWCA purchased the building in 1927, and it continues to be owned by that organization. It is one of approximately 75 stone residences remaining in the city of Lockport.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.[1]
