William Dorsheimer House is a historic home located at Buffalo in Erie County, New York. It was designed and built in 1868 by Henry Hobson Richardson (1838–1886) for William Dorsheimer (1832–1888), prominent local lawyer and Lieutenant Governor of New York. It is a two-and-a-half-story brick dwelling and represents the profound influence of French ideas on the arts in the post Civil War period.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
