The E. B. White House is located in Brooklin, Maine, United States. Author E. B. White did not advertise its location while he was alive, enjoying his privacy. In 1977, he convinced an interviewer to report that "he lives in 'a New England coastal town', somewhere between Nova Scotia and Cuba".[2] After his death, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The farm on this property was the inspiration for Charlotte's Web.[2]
