The Elnathan Nye House is a historic house at 33 Old Main Road in North Falmouth, Massachusetts. The oldest portion of this 2-1/2 story house was built c. 1735; it was extended to its present five-bay facade in 1772. The interior of the house is particularly well preserved, with three extant beehive ovens, plaster-and-lath walls, and period wood paneling. The property's barn may also date to the 18th century. Elnathan Nye, the builder, was a prominent local citizen.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1]
