Daniel Royer House is a historic home located at Woodbury Township, Blair County, Pennsylvania. It was built in at least two sections. The oldest section is a three-bay, two-story stone section built about 1815. Built about the same time was a 1 12-story clapboard section. A two-bay by five-bay wing addition was probably built in the 1840s. It features a two-story porch across the length of the addition. The house is associated with the Royer family; early settlers of Woodbury Township and prominent in the local iron making industry.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[1]
