Alexander Campbell Mansion, also known as Campbell Mansion or Alexander Campbell House was the home of minister Alexander Campbell and his family in West Virginia. His wife Margaret's father John Brown had owned a large amount of property in Bethany, including this; the house dates to 1793.
Known as the "sage of Bethany", Campbell was one of the most prominent early leaders of the Restoration Movement in United States Christianity, beginning in 1812, which resulted in formation of numerous congregations of the Disciples of Christ and Churches of Christ. He founded Bethany College in 1840, gaining a charter by the Virginia legislature and offering land and funds for the institution. He served as its first president.
The mansion, together with adjacent buildings and an associated cemetery property nearby, was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1994. It is located just off West Virginia Route 67 in Bethany.
