The Peleg Champlin House is an historic house on Rodman Pond Lane in western New Shoreham, on Block Island, in Rhode Island. It is a 1+12-story wood-frame structure, five bays wide, with a side-gable roof and a large central chimney. An ell extends from the back (north) side of the house. The Federal style wooden house was built c. 1820 by Peleg Champlin, a farmer from one of the island's older families. The house is one of the best-preserved houses of the period on the island.[2]

The residence was added to the National Historic Register in 1982,[1] after a campaign led by Ronald Reagan.
