The Joseph D. and Margaret Kelly House is a historic residence in The Dalles, Oregon, United States. Joseph Kelly, a highly successful farmer during the establishment of wheat as a major cash crop in Wasco County, retired young to this 1908 blufftop house and continued his career as a landlord and businessman. He and his wife Margaret, a teacher and member of another important wheat family, became a prominent philanthropic figures in The Dalles. The house is architecturally notable for its vernacular rendering of the Queen Anne style, reflecting the Kellys' rural background in contrast to the high Victorian approach used elsewhere in The Dalles.[1]

The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.[2]
