Bonner House is a historic home located at Bath, Beaufort County, North Carolina. It was built about 1835, and is a two-story frame dwelling with a one-story wing and rear shed addition. It sits on a brick pier foundation and has a side-hall plan. It is on land once owned by John Lawson (1674? – 1711), explorer and founder of Bath.[2]

It is a contributing property in the NRHP-listed Bath Historic District, also known as Historic Bath, and is now an 1830s period historic house museum. The mid-18th century period Palmer-Marsh House can also be toured.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1970.[1]
