Slifer House, also known as Administration Building-Evangelical Home, is a historic home located at Kelly Township, Union County, Pennsylvania. It was designed by noted Philadelphia architect Samuel Sloan and built in 1861, as a country home for Lewisburg merchant Eli Slifer (1818-1888). It has a 2 1/2-story, brick, square main section, with two rectangular rear wings. The main section has a hipped roof with cross gables in a Victorian style. It features wraparound and two-story porches and a four-story square tower. It has housed elder care facilities since 1916, when it was purchased by the Evangelical Association.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[1]
