The Vogt House, also known as the Vogt-Unash House, is a historic building located in Iowa City, Iowa, United States. The two-story, brick structure is a fine example of vernacular Queen Anne architecture.[2] It follows an asymmetrical plan and features a high-pitched hipped roof, a gabled and a round dormer on the south elevation, a two-story gabled-roof pavilion on the east, a two-story polygonal bay with a hipped roof on the west, and a single-story addition on the back. Of particular merit is the wrap-around, latticework porch that has a round pavilion with a conical roof and finial on its southwest corner.[2] There are also two outbuildings: a two-story frame carriage house to the west of the house, and a woodshed to the north of the main house.

The house was individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1] In 1994 it was included as a contributing property in the Brown Street Historic District.[3]
