The Harmony Plantation, also known as Montague-Jones Farm, is a historic plantation house located at 5104 Riley Hill Road near Wendell, North Carolina, a town in eastern Wake County. It was built in 1833, and is a two-story, three bay, single-pile, Greek Revival style frame dwelling. It is sheathed in weatherboard, has a hipped roof, and a gabled rear ell. The front facade features a centered, double-tier pedimented, front-gabled portico with bracketed cornice and unfluted Doric order columns. Also on the property is a contributing one-story, rectangular, beaded weatherboard building that once housed a doctor's office (1833).[2]

In January 2008, the Harmony Plantation was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
