LaGrange, also known as La Grange Plantation or Meredith House, is a historic home located at Cambridge, Dorchester County, Maryland, United States. It was built about 1760. The house is a 2 12-story Flemish bond brick house and is one of the few remaining Georgian houses in the town. Sun porches and a frame wing were added to the main house in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Three outbuildings remain, including a late-19th century dairy, an 18th-century smokehouse, and a 20th-century garage.[2]

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