Oscar Hammerstein II Farm, also known as the Highland Farm, is a historic home and farm in Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The farmhouse was built in 1840, and is a three-story, three bay, stuccoed masonry residence with a hipped roof. It features a one-story wraparound porch. A decorative balustrade was added in 1954. Also on the property is a contributing bank barn. Lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II (1895–1960) purchased the farm in 1940 and died there on August 23, 1960.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]
