The Pardee Morris House, also known as John Morris House, is a historic house museum at 325 Lighthouse Road in New Haven, Connecticut. It is a large 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, seven bays wide, with stone end walls and several additions. The oldest portions of the house are believed to date to the late 17th century. It was partially burned by the British in 1779.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.[1] It is now owned and operated by the New Haven Museum and Historical Society, and is open seasonally for events, classes and tours.
