Ernest Thralls House was a historic home located at Wayne Township in Greene County, Pennsylvania. The house was built in 1939-1940, and is a 2 1/2-story, concrete block dwelling in the Spanish Revival-style. It measures 64 feet wide and 51 feet deep, and has terraces on the front and rear. Also on the property are a contributing tenant house (c. 1940), three sheds, a horse barn, open sheep shed, pig shed, and chicken coop.[2]

The house was demolished several years after it was damaged in 2000 by subsidence caused by Consol Energy's Blacksville No. 2 longwall mine.[3] A new one story house now sits near the site of the previous house.

The Ernest Thralls House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.[1]
