Jacob Funk House and Barn is a historic home located at Springfield Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The house consists of three sections; the oldest built about 1792. It is a 2 1/2-story, stone dwelling measuring 40 feet wide and 28 feet deep and originally reflective of the Georgian style. The oldest section is a two-story, two bay, stone structure two rooms deep. About 1855, a two-story, three-bay extension was added to the east gable. A kitchen and bath addition was built about 1930. The house was remodeled in the Colonial Revival style between about 1945 and 1955, at which time a one-story addition and deck were added to the rear of the house. Also on the property are a contributing stone bank barn (c. 1810) and stone spring house (c. 1855).[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.[1]
