The Mercer Brown House is a historic home located at Rising Sun, Cecil County, Maryland, United States. It consists of three distinct portions: a two-story, three-bay, gable-roofed Flemish bond brick part dating to 1746; a three bay wide frame portion of the house dating to the early and late 19th century; and a log pen addition. The house is an example of the Pennsylvania Quaker building tradition in Maryland. The property also has an early-20th century bank barn.[2]

The Mercer Brown House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1]
