The Gideon Pelton Farm is a Registered Historic Place located on Rockafellow Lane in the Town of Montgomery in Orange County, New York. Pelton settled the area in the 1770s and built the house soon afterwards. A stone wing was built on it before the end of the century, and in the 1830s a large frame section was added in the then-popular Greek Revival style that gave the house its current character. It continues to be used as a farmhouse to this day.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.[1]
