Simon Cameron House and Bank consists of a historic home and bank building located at Middletown, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. The house was built about 1833, and is a 2 1/2-story, 3-bay, brick building with a typical half-Georgian plan. Attached to the house is a 2 1/2-story, 3-bay, stone building, also with a typical half-Georgian plan. The stone structure originally housed the Cameron Bank, chartered in 1832. It was the primary home for the Simon Cameron (1799-1889) family from 1832 to 1855. Simon Cameron's son J. Donald Cameron (1833-1918) was born in the house.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.[1]
