The Colony House, at 137 Strathearn Pl. in Simi Valley, California, is a kit house built in 1888 that is on display in a historical park, the Strathearn Historical Park and Museum, along with the Simi Adobe and the Strathearn House.
It was one of 12 kit houses that started an intended community, "Simiopolis", of which only two survive. The house was originally located at Second and Ashland Streets and came to serve as a parsonage to a church. When the church sought to use the property for an extension of the church itself, the building was moved in 1970 to the current site.
