The Hopkins House is located in Tecumseh, Kansas. There are three contributing structures on the property; the house and barn, both built around 1859 and a coal shed built around 1920. The Greek Revival style limestone house has brick chimneys and a wooden porch. It is significant for its rare (for Kansas) architecture, its associations with the life of early settler Eli Hopkins and its reflection of the history of territorial Kansas.[2] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in January, 2009.[1]

It was listed as a featured property of the week in a program of the National Park Service that began in July, 2008.[1][3]
