The Harris Farm is a historic late First Period farmhouse at 11 Manataug Trail in Marblehead, Massachusetts. It is a rare example of a three-bay house from that period. It was built c. 1670 as a two-story structure with one room on each floor, and an integral leanto section in the rear. In the 18th century the leanto section was raised to a full two stories and the roof was rebuilt. Further additions in the 1950s added converted 19th-century sheds to the rear of the house, and the front door was replaced with a Colonial Revival style door.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
