Marian Anderson House is a historic home located in the Southwest Center City neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was built about 1870, and is a two-story, brick rowhouse dwelling in the Italianate style. A studio was added above the previously one-story, rear kitchen ell about 1925, and it was extensively renovated about 1940. It was a home of opera singer and civil rights singer, Marian Anderson. She resided here from 1924 to 1943. The property houses the Marian Anderson Historical Society.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2011.[1]
