Gov. H. Guy Kump House is a historic home located at Elkins, Randolph County, West Virginia. It was designed by noted Washington, D.C.-architect Clarence L. Harding and built in 1924-1925, as a home for West Virginia Governor Herman G. Kump (1877–1962) and his wife Edna Hall Scott Kump (1887–1957). It is a 2 1/2-story, 42 foot square, red brick dwelling with a steeply pitched, slate covered gable roof. The front facade features a shallow Doric order entrance portico and it has a porte cochere and sun porch. The house is in a Neo-Federal Revival style with Neo-Georgian Revival elements.[2] In 2008, the house was willed to the city of Elkins.[3]

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