Oakwood is a historic house at Harwood, Anne Arundel County, Maryland. It was built in the 1850s and is a 2 12-story, frame vernacular farmhouse with Greek Revival influenced details. It is a highly intact, mid-19th-century tobacco plantation dwelling and is associated with Sprigg Harwood, a leader in the failed initiative to have Maryland leave the Union and align with the newly formed Confederate States of America.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.[1]
