The George J. Kempf House is a privately owned residential house located at 212 East Kilbuck Street in the city of Tecumseh in Lenawee County, Michigan. It was designated as a Michigan State Historic State and listed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 13, 1986.[1][2] It is located just around the corner from the Joseph E. Hall House.

The house was built in 1905 by architect George Kempf and embodies a mix of Colonial Revival, Late Victorian, and Queen Anne Style architecture. It is significant on the local level as a stylish turn-of-the-century, two-story house. George Kempf lived in the house, and he and his brother Henry built many local homes in Tecumseh around this time.[2]
