The Philemon Wright/Asa Locke Farm is a historic farm at 78 Ridge Street in Winchester, Massachusetts. The property was owned around the turn of the 19th century by Philemon Wright, a noted explorer of Canada, and was developed by the family of Josiah Locke, to whom he sold the property in 1800 before embarking on his explorations. The Greek Revival farmhouse was probably built c. 1828 by Asa Locke. The farm remained in the Locke family into the 20th century.[2]

The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1] It is one of a few working farms in Winchester.
