Jacob Zook House, also known as the Rodney House and Store, is a historic home located in West Whiteland Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It is a 2 1/2-story, "T"-shaped, stone dwelling. The house was built about 1820 in the Federal style. It has a "T" kitchen wing added in 1850. It has a one-story, projecting storefront that replaces the original porch.[2] In 2010, it housed the "Green Papaya" fast food restaurant, however, in 2013, the restaurant will become the "Biryani King" Indian restaurant.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.[1]
