Edgewood House is an historic school building located at Pelham Manor, Westchester County, New York. It was built in 1893 and is a ​3 12-story, wood and masonry building in the Colonial Revival style. It is composed of a wide central gable roofed pavilion, flanked by flat-roofed wings of balanced proportions. It features deep porches and a large semi-elliptical bay window. It was once associated with Mrs. Hazen's School (1889-1915) and is representative of a turn-of-the-century academic building. The building once housed reception areas, classrooms, a gymnasium, dormitories, and staff quarters. It has been converted to apartments.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
