George and Addison Wheeler House, also known as Old Place, is a historic home located at East Bloomfield in Ontario County, New York. The Greek Revival–style home was built in two sections in about 1818 and 1840. The 2-story main block from 1840 features a temple front with a massive, pedimented portico. Behind it stands a 1 12-story wing that was the original saltbox-style home constructed about 1818. Also on the property is a 19th-century barn / carriage house and a small family cemetery. Abandoned for a generation, it was restored in the late 1940s by William and Marie Houghton.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.[1]
