The Maton-Hunt-Farnum Farm (also known as the Pardon Hunt Farm) is an historic farm on Putnam Pike in Glocester, Rhode Island. The main house is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with a gable roof and a central chimney, and is set on the north side of Putnam Pike. Behind the house are a number of farm outbuildings, including two barns, henhouses, a corn crib, and a privy. Built c. 1793 by Daniel Manton, the house exhibits fine Federal styling both inside and outside.[2]

The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
