The Gideon Pelton Farm is a Registered Historic Place located on Rockafellow Lane in the Town of Montgomery in Orange County, New York. It was added to the Register in 1995.

Pelton settled the area in the 1770s and built the house soon afterwards. A stone wing was built on it before the end of the century, and in the 1830s a large frame section was added in the then-popular Greek Revival style that gave the house its current character. It continues to be used as a farmhouse to this day.
