Peters-Graham House is a historic home located at Greensboro in Greene County, Pennsylvania. The first section was built about 1859, and is a one-story, single pen log dwelling, measuring 15 feet by 13 feet. Attached to it is a 18 feet by 13 feet timber frame addition built in the mid- to late-19th century. The two sections are covered by a shallow pitched roof. A shed roofed kitchen was added in the mid-20th century. It was built by Robert Peters, an African American and freed slave who worked in the local potteries.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.[1]
