Webster Wagner House is a historic home located at Palatine Bridge in Montgomery County, New York. It was built in 1876 and designed by noted architect Horatio Nelson White (1814–1892) as the home for railroad car magnate Webster Wagner (1817–1882). It consists of a 2 12-story main block with a 2-story rear service wing. It features a 3-story entrance tower at the southeast corner.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1] The collapse of a major portion of the rear wing caused the issue of a demolition order, and as of Fall 2014 the house was undergoing slow demolition with an effort to salvage ornamental features.
