Carson McCullers House is a historic home located at South Nyack in Rockland County, New York. It is a two-story Second Empire style residence constructed in 1880 and modified with subsequent interior and exterior modifications largely in the Colonial Revival spirit about 1910. It is a frame structure built originally as parsonage, three bays wide and four bays deep. It features a one-story verandah, a slate-covered mansard roof, and an interesting multi-story tower projection crowned by a bell-cast roof. It was home to noted author Carson McCullers (1917–1967) from 1945 to 1967.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.[1]
