The Ward Brothers' House and Shop is a historic home located at Crisfield, Somerset County, Maryland, United States. It consists of a two-story, two-bay, one-room plan frame dwelling built around 1880, and the brothers' barber shop, a composite building composed of individual structures grouped together behind a long false front. The brothers Lemuel T. Ward, Jr. (1896-1985) and Steve Ward (1895-1976) are recognized as the fathers of the modern movement in decorative wildlife, or decoy, carving in America.[2]

The Ward Brothers' House and Shop was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.[1] The house was demolished in November 2013[3].
