The Rufus Piper Homestead is a historic house on Pierce Road in Dublin, New Hampshire. The house is a typical New England multi-section farmhouse, joining a main house block to a barn. The oldest portion of the house is one of the 1-1/2 story ells, A Cape style house which was built c. 1817 by Rufus Piper, who was active in town affairs for many years. Piper expanded the house in 1832, adding what is now the main 2-1/2 story Colonial style block. The property was, around the turn of the 20th century, part of Louis Cabot's extensive summer estate.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1] The home of Rufus Piper's father, the Solomon Piper Farm, also still stands and is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
