The Hansen House in Racine, Wisconsin is a Greek Revival style house probably built between 1854 and 1856 by carpenter Thomas Fuller. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places listings in 1979.[1]

It was deemed "the best example in Racine of a significant common type of Greek Revival house — the two-story pavilion with gable end facing the street and a onestory wing with porch. This type was popular in western New York State and throughout the Midwest."[2]
