Hunt House is a historic home located at Waterloo in Seneca County, New York. It was built about 1830 and is a two-story brick dwelling with a distinctive pedimented portico supported by four Doric order columns. The home was renovated to its current appearance in the 1920s. The home is notable as the residence of Mrs. Jane C. Hunt who, on July 13, 1848, invited Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Martha Coffin Wright, and Mary Ann M'Clintock to it to plan the First Women's Rights Convention in the United States.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
