Robert Parkinson Farm is a historic property in Morris Township, Pennsylvania. The contributing buildings are the ca. 1830 house, ca. 1830 banked barn, ca. 1870 sheep barn, ca. 1880 hay shed, ca. 1880 spring house, and a ca. 1920 privy. The house is a five bay center passage farmhouse with an attached rear kitchen in a "T" shaped floor plan. The Parkinson Farm is an example of an early 19th century sheep farm, and it continued to operate as such until about 1960.[2]

It is designated as a historic residential landmark/farmstead by the Washington County History & Landmarks Foundation, [3] and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
