The Eleutheros Cooke House, also known as the Cooke-Dorn House, at 1415 Columbus Avenue in Sandusky, Ohio is a three-story, limestone Greek Revival style house that was built in 1844. It was the last home of Eleutheros Cooke, one of the first settlers in Sandusky and its first lawyer. Eleutheros was father of Jay Cooke, the Civil War financier.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
