The Redman Farm House is a historic house at 2173 Washington Street in Canton, Massachusetts. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with a side gable roof, end chimneys, and clapboard siding. The house was built in 1795, and is one Canton's few surviving 18th-century houses. It stands on land that was deeded to Robert Redman in 1722 by the local Native Americans.[2]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, where it is incorrectly listed as being at the corner of Washington St. and Homans Lane.[3]
