Henry Varnum Poor House, also known as "Crow House," is a historic home located on South Mountain Road at New City in Rockland County, New York. It was built between about 1920 and 1949 by artist Henry Varnum Poor (1887–1970). It combines elements of rustic Arts and Crafts Movement vernacular with elements of the Modern movement. Also on the property are a studio dated to 1957; a small half-timbered mill building, 1921; woodshop, ca. 1920–1930; an outdoor kiln from 1957; bridge, ca. 1950; and a terraced garden, 1926.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.[1]
