The Capt. Mial Pierce Farm is a historic farm at 177 Hornbine Road in Rehoboth, Massachusetts. The central element of this farm complex is a 1-1/2 story wood frame house built c. 1800, probably by Mial Pierce, a local militia captain in the American Revolutionary War, who is buried in a family plot on the property. The house is a Cape style cottage, which originally had a central chimney (removed during alterations c. 1850). There are two service ells dating to the 19th century. The complex includes a number of 19th century farm-related outbuildings.[2]

The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
