The Roebuck Tavern is a historic tavern at 21 Dedham Street in Wrentham, Massachusetts. The two-story Federal style structure was built in 1795 by David Fisher, whose family was one of the earliest to settle the area in the 17th century. Fisher operated a tavern, which would have been successful, as Wrentham was then a stop on the stagecoach route between Boston and Providence, Rhode Island. The building remained in the Fisher family until 1910.[2]

The tavern was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
