Findlay Farm is a historic home and farm complex located at Peters Township in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. The house was built between 1825 and 1830, and is a 2 12-story, five-bay rubble limestone dwelling with a gable roof. It has a full-length front porch added in the early 20th century. Also on the property is a 19th-century frame barn. The property was once owned by Pennsylvania Governor and U.S. Senator William Findlay (1768–1856), who sold it in 1823.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
