Chilton House is a historic home located at St. Albans, Kanawha County, West Virginia. It was built in 1857, and is a "T"-shaped brick dwelling in the Gothic Revival style. The roof structure has a total of seven gables, three in the head and four in the leg of its "T" shape. In 1975, the house was moved approximately 200 yards to its new location and set on a cinder block and sandstone foundation. In 1883, the house became the property of William and Mary Chilton, whose son Senator William E. Chilton (1858-1939) was a frequent visitor.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]
