The Ashton-Hursh House is a historic home and outbuilding located at Fairview Township, York County, Pennsylvania. The house was built in stages between about 1764 and 1830. It is a 2 1/2-story, "L"-shaped, Federal style log, frame, and stone dwelling. It sits on a limestone foundation and has a gable roof. It features three Greek Revival-style porticos. The frame outbuilding may date as early as 1734, but it was renovated about 1830.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.[1]

The outbuilding on the property is thought to be the oldest occupied structure in York County, Pennsylvania.
