The Harris Farm is a historic late First Period farmhouse at 3 Manataug Trail in Marblehead, Massachusetts. It is a rare example of a three bay house from that period. It was built c. 1720 as a two story structure with one room on each floor, and an integral leanto section in the rear. In the 18th century the leanto section was raised to a full two stories and the roof was rebuilt. Further additions in the 1950s added converted 19th century sheds to the rear of the house, and the front door was replaced with a Colonial Revival style door.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
