The Whipple House is a historic house museum at 4 Pleasant Street in Ashland, New Hampshire. The 1 12 story Cape style house was built c. 1825-1850, and is relatively architecturally undistinguished. It is significant for its association with George Hoyt Whipple (1878-1976), a Nobel Prize-winning doctor and pathologist. It is in this house that Whipple was born in 1879.[2] Whipple gave the house to the town in 1970, and it is now operated by the Ashland Historical Society as a museum, open during the warmer months.[3]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1]
